Jesus Restored Us

It was told that in 1868 when Benjamin Disraeli and William Gladstone were competing for the post of Prime Minister in England, it just so happened that a young lady was taken to dinner for consecutive evening by each man. Asked by the press what impressions these two celebrated men had made upon her, she replied, “When I left the dining room after sitting next to Mr. Gladstone, I thought he was the cleverest man in England. But after sitting next to Mr. Disraeli, I thought I was the cleverest woman in England.” In that election Disraeli won.

Out of the unending specialties of Jesus, what's so fascinating about him is, his ability to make us see how much valuable we are in the sight of God. He has that exceptional quality to lift us up from a trance of unworthiness to a status of great merit. The greatest miracle he had performed is he lifted our head up by restoring our long lost dignity. He doesn't belittle, despise, discourage or unfriend anyone, rather while he was on the cross itself, he saw so much worth in us that he asked forgiveness on our behalf. Jesus showed us life is not how we make others feel about us so much as we make about others. Therefore those of us who have not yet find our dignity back, it's time to meet Jesus.

"When Jesus came down from the mountainside, large crowds followed him. A man with leprosy came and knelt before him and said, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.” Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” Immediately he was cleansed of his leprosy. Then Jesus said to him, “See that you don’t tell anyone. But go, show yourself to the priest and offer the gift Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.” - Matthew 8:1-4
