Sometimes people grow up feeling they are the lowest person on the totem pole. Those around them seem to have a wonderful family life. They make good grades or play sports or are popular with other kids. They seem to have it all together.
Even if you grew up as a Christian you can feel that God didn’t outfit you with the best scenario.
Then when you catch a vision or sense your calling, the road is not all that smooth ahead of you. So naturally, we might ask... "Why is this happening to me?"
Have you ever thought about what Jesus experienced? His life certainly wasn’t a picnic.
Stuff happened to Jesus too. And if it happened to Him, it shouldn’t be strange that it’s happening to you too. It's how you deal with the stuff when it happens that makes all the difference in the world.
Here are seven things you may not have thought about Jesus.
First, He was born out of wedlock.
Up until the past ten to twenty years. . .if you had a child out of wedlock. . .or what the world calls an illegitimate child. . .you were viewed and treated differently by all the ‘good’ folks.
So just imagine what that was like 2,000 years ago.
