Greatness Revealed in What it Did Not Do

If the Christian story of the world is true and Jesus is God, it is far more remarkable what he didn’t do than what he did.  You try living in a slum when you are in truth the wealthiest person on earth.  You try listening to hours upon hours of ignorance when you are the most wise person on earth.  You try watching people lie, cheat, steal and murder each other when your heart is more loving than any heart on earth.  The restraint and endurance of Jesus is more miraculous than the the miraculous, and that final restraint, the restraint to stay on the cross when he is the most powerful being on earth…that is the miracle that saves us.  Great God.
