And they … wondered, saying one to another, What manner of man is this! for he commandeth even the winds and water, and they obey him.- Luke 8:25B

The world presents a false picture of Christ we dare not accept. He is presented as a religious figure, and maybe a very good one of his day but uneducated and unaware of modern science, day-to-day stresses of today’s life and jobs. The idea he is smart enough to direct how run a business, answer scientific problems, or conduct daily affairs is not even considered.

Don’t accept that!

Dallas Willard, Professor in the School of Philosophy at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, has a different take!

He is not just nice, he is brilliant. He is the smartest man who ever lived. He is now supervising the entire course of world history (Rev. 1:5) while simultaneously preparing the rest of the universe for our future role in it (John 14:2). He always has the best information on everything and certainly also on the things that matter most in human life. — The Divine Conspiracy (p. 95)

Soundbite: “The Lord of the universe is not stupid!”
Prayer: “Jesus, you are smart enough be my boss! Amen!”
