This Ordinary, Extraordinary Life is all about Jesus - and it's all about you, me, and the world around us.
Jesus lived an ordinary life. He had parents, brothers and sisters, and an extended family. He worked with his hands and read the scriptures. He got hungry, thirsty, and tired, just like anyone else. He loved to spend time with people - telling stories, going to parties, blessing children and their parents, and talking about things that mattered. He loved creation - spending time outdoors, walking for miles, observing and commenting on flowers and fields of grain, on trees and birds.
Jesus lived - and continues to live! - an extraordinary life. As the divine Word, he was present before creation, and through him all things were created. As the second person of the Trinity, he was God Incarnate. He gave his earthly life to preaching and teaching, to healing and doing wonders. He welcomed people from all walks of life and called them to follow him. As the bread of life, the bread of heaven, he gave his life for the world. He died in humiliation and pain on a cross - then rose again to life! He returned to heaven, and one day will come again in glory.
