There are some great motivational speakers around the world, and some of them are so good with such a powerful emotional message they can get crowds of tens of thousands of people on their feet shouting and clapping and dancing enthusiastically. But among all the motivational teachers from the beginning of time, and among all the messages delivered, there is one teacher and one message that stands so far above all the others, there is no comparison. No one and no message has changed so many lives forever like this man and this message.
What is this motivational message that is so powerful, so truthful, so unaffected by time, and so life changing? It is the message delivered through Jesus Christ, and it is such a divinely powerful message that virtually no one can comprehend it without the help of the God who wrote the script.
I want to share the substance of the greatest message ever delivered. I hope and pray I will do justice pointing to him and to his message, and that the eyes of your heart will be opened so you can receive the message and be changed forever. If you comprehend his motivational message, you will never need to attend another motivational seminar, because all other messages will pale in comparison. The message of Jesus Christ will empower you in this life and in the life to come.
The man and the message are hard to separate, because Jesus not only brought the message, he is the divine message. Jesus was not just another man with a message, he was God incarnate. Jesus said,
I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. [John 14:6]
No other motivational teacher in this world could claim to be the message like Jesus did.
Consider that Jesus was born of a virgin, which never happened before or since. He performed miracles never seen before, including walking on water, healing lepers, and raising the dead. He was crucified on a cross, died, was buried, and after three days raised himself from the dead. Can you name a single motivational speaker who has done any of these things, let alone all of them?
Jesus didn’t try to inspire us just by walking on glowing coals—he raised himself from the dead! Jesus didn’t just teach people how to acquire things—he created the Heavens and the earth! Jesus didn’t just heal people, his sacrifice saved millions of souls! There has never been a savior like Jesus. There has never been a man like Jesus. There has never been such a motivational teacher like Jesus.
Now let’s look at the substance of the greatest message ever delivered to mankind.
