The Most Unique Person

Jesus carrying cross

H.G. Wells wrote, “Christ is the most unique person of history. No man can write a history of the human race without giving first and foremost place to the penniless teacher of Nazareth.” Rabbi Stephen Wise said concerning Jesus, “You will find that He is divinely human. It is no mean joy to us of the house of Israel to recognize, to honor and to cherish among our brethren, Jesus the Jew, who has influenced the world more than any other man.” This person called Jesus lived on earth for only 33 years. He never traveled more than 100 miles from His home. Yet Charles Lamb was right in saying, “If all the illustrious men of history were gathered together and Shakespeare should enter their presence, they would rise to do him honor; but if Jesus Christ should come in, they would fall down and worship Him.”

Prayer for the day

Loving Lord Jesus, I would honor You this day and evermore—in adoration I worship You, my Savior and my Lord.

    I need help!! My mind keeps wondering to all sinful thoughts, women, girls etc..! I am 45 and every good thought I have, the first word in my head starts out positive about JESUS / GOD! but the second is hateful!! i think something good then something terrible, that i can’t stand it. I feel like satan is running my mind, like he can read my thoughts. I do believe JESUS DIED FOR MY SINS AND ROSE FROM THE DEATH INTO HEAVEN. HE IS MY SAVIOR even though my mind tells me No I don’t.

      Hi Jim,

      The devil has one main goal: to turn us away from God and instead make us his slaves. And he will do everything possible to achieve this goal. That’s why the Bible commands us to “Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes” (Ephesians 6:11).

      Temptation is one of the devil’s main weapons – and it takes many different forms. He’ll try, for example, to tempt us with sins of the flesh – immorality, destructive habits and so forth. But if those don’t work, he’ll tempt us with sins of the heart or mind – evil thoughts, wrong motives, anger and jealousy. He’ll also attack us spiritually – trying to fill us with doubts, attempting to convince us that God doesn’t care about us and filling us with pride.

      So what can we do? The first step is to be sure that we have given our lives to Christ. When we come to Him, we are no longer citizens of Satan’s kingdom; we are now citizens of the Kingdom of God! Let this great truth strengthen you every day.

      Also, when Satan tempts you, recognize it for what it is: an attempt to turn you away from God. Then combat his lies with the truth of God’s Word, with prayer and with the help of other believers. The Bible says, “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you” (James 4:7).

    Mr. Graham, I have been reading your devotional Unto the Hills for many years. The Lord Jesus Christ has blessed you with the wonderful ability to reach out and spread the word for many years. Thank you for your service.

      I’ve watched and listened to Billy Graham since I was 13. I’m 64 now. I always look for his devotions. I know he always speaks the true words of God. No matter what when I see his name, I have to stop and read what he has to say. Thank you for your service. Your encouraging hope in the Lord is always a blessing.

    This is one of the greatest gifts anyone can ever receive. Daddy Graham has been a great blessing to our generation and will remain a great blessing until Christ returns.
