Known To Be

anecdotal stories

After he has suffered, he will see the light of life and be satisfied; by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many, and he will bear their iniquities. – Isaiah 53:11.

He called you to this through our gospel, that you might share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. – 2 Thessalonians 2:14.

Inheritance – All Christians Share

A lawyer in Los Angeles serves some of the biggest stars in show business, but he never gets calls, complaints, or requests from them. He is an agent for dead celebrities. Among his clientele are Marilyn Monroe, W. C. Fields, and Elvis Presley. What he actually does is watch commercial markets for merchandisers who use the likenesses and names of the deceased stars to sell their products without reimbursing the heirs. The lawyer insists that the heirs of famous people retain a continuing right to the fame their relative developed while alive.

Jesus personified everything about the kingdom that he taught—light, life, love, salvation. That is why he wants us to follow and learn of him. If we understand and follow him—living as he lived, thinking as he thought—we possess him, having the salvation that he is. In appropriating Christ personally, we possess light, life, love, and salvation. We are temples of God, filled with God! Incredible: to have such treasure in these jars of clay!
