The world has called a number of men 'great,' such as Alexander the Great and Herod the Great. They were great in power, in courage, in military or political skill, but they were not great in any spiritual sense. Jesus is by far the greatest man who ever lived. None less than an angel from heaven announced: 'He shall be great,' in foretelling His birth (Luke 1:32). Of only one other man is it said in the Bible that he was 'great,' and that was John the Baptist (Luke 1:15), and he felt unworthy to even unlatch Jesus' sandal (Luke 3:16). Of Jesus it was said, 'For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace' (Isaiah 9:6). He truly is 'wonderful.'
His birth was the greatest of any man (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18-23; John 2:10; Hebrews 1:6).
The question remains, 'What think ye of Christ?' Who is Jesus to you? What roles does He fulfill in your life? Is He making a real difference? Does His Word rule your heart? Do your actions reflect your love for Him? Do you sacrifice for His cause? The Lamb of God now invites; the Lion of Judah will one day return. --Allen Webster
