The story

Of all the stories of great men and women, this story strucks me most. It strucks me because thw writer captures the character of the person in a very realistic and true way. I do not know the author of the story.

We all have a story to tell. Rest and relax and read this one -

More than 1900 years ago there was a man born contrary to the laws of life.

This man lived in poverty and was reared in obscurity. He did not travel
extensively. Only once did he cross the boundary of the country in which he
lived, and that was during his exile in childhood.

He possessed neither wealth nor influence. His relatives were inconspicuous
and had neither training nor formal education.

Yet in infancy he startled a king, in childhood he puzzled doctors, in
manhood he ruled the course of nature, walked upon the billows as if pavements,
and hushed the sea to sleep.

He healed the multitudes without medicine and made no charge for his
service.

He never wrote a book. Yet all the libraries of the country could not hold
the books that have been written about him.

He never wrote a song. Yet he has furnished the theme for more songs than
all the songwriters combined.

He never founded a college. But all the schools put together cannot boast
of having so many students.

He never marshaled an army nor drafted a soldier nor fired a gun. Yet no
leader ever had more volunteers, who have, under his orders, made more rebels
stack their arms and surrender without a shot fired.

He never practiced psychiatry. And yet he has healed more broken hearts
than all the doctors far and near.

He stands forth upon the highest pinnacle of heaven's glory, proclaimed of
God, acknowledged by angels, adored by saints, feared by devils, as the living,
personal Lord Jesus Christ -- my Lord and Savior.
