What He did

Jesus, He:

Created, appeared, was prophesied about, hoped for, called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace (And mightily lives up to all of those even today), was born, lived a human life, honored His mother and earthy father (and His real Father too), never killed, swore, had no other God before Him, never had or worshiped a carved image, never took His name or His Fathers name in vain, kept the sabbath day (As it was meant to be kept by God's rules and not man's), never committed adultery (He was never married, but He also never committed fornication), never stole anything, did not bear false witness against anyone, never coveted anything that belonged to someone else, worked with His hands, was called, baptized, baptized (once by water and then by the Holy Spirit), fasted, prayed, was tempted, called others to follow Him, made plain the teaching of God, upset the phonies, healed, loved, gave all of Himself, befriended sinners, longed for those lost, taught, lived what He taught, amazed many, commanded demons, entered Jerusalem on a colt, was stalked, betrayed, arrested, claimed He was that I AM, given an unfair trial, humiliated, mocked, crucified, laid in a tomb, RAISED TO LIFE, is still alive today, has a free gift of salvation, beat Satan, will come again on the clouds, take His children home, destroy sin, start a new world, live forever, give us everlasting life and He is real, really.
