Jesus was Famous!

2000 years ago, Jesus was an A-list celebrity. Time and again, the gospels mention his fame.

And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about.
- Luke 4:14
His fame started in a region.
And the fame of him went out into every place of the country round about.
- Luke 4:37
Then it went through the whole country.
But so much the more went there a fame abroad of him: and great multitudes came together to hear, and to be healed by him of their infirmities.
- Luke 5:15
And it kept building as time went on.

What happened?

Has the church grown so accustomed to his blessings, his grace, his power, and his wonder that we've forgotten just how wonderful Jesus is?

Lord Jesus, let our hearts burn within us. May we never forget just how famous you are!
