I’ve been putting this off for quite a while. Partly because I wasn’t sure what to write and it took a while to come to grips with just who I am. Labeling yourself a “nobody” has internal consequences and they’re not all pleasant. I have to be honest and tell you the election was a major attention grabber. Even now it’s hard to get back to what really matters. Such is the pull of the world. But in the end my life would have no more meaning than a stone tossed in the ocean if it was only about me.
To get back to the reason and theme of this blog, “I’m just a nobody”. In the greater scheme of things I don’t count at all. I can hear people saying, if anyone is reading, “why should I listen to what he’s saying”. The plain and simple truth is you don’t have to but I would hope you do. The message of this blog isn’t about me and being a nobody helps point that out. Because, you see, it’s really not my message.
In the Grand Plan we’re all nobodies. All the politicians and rulers can do is make our lives easy or hard but they can’t save us, and that makes them nobody. Every thing they do is temporary. Every civilization on Earth has had a beginning and an end and in that end it becomes nothing. Every great leader in all of history has had a birth and death, and in the end they have no body. People might think of them as somebody because they made an impact while they were alive and people might still talk about them. But all it takes for them to become a nobody is the next somebody that undoes everything they accomplished.
We’re all nobodies no matter how successful, in whatever way you can imagine. It all does us absolutely no good in the end because life is terminal and there’s only one accomplishment that has good eternal consequences. That is making the choice to accept Jesus. I know there’s people rolling their eyes and thinking “not this again”. I used to be one of them, but there’s more than enough evidence to show that Jesus meant what He said and is who He said He is. All you have to do is actually examine the evidence and let it take you to a conclusion. A nobody has nothing to gain from presenting the evidence. Only the person examining it can count it as gain or loss. Ask yourself this question. What would it take to convince me that Jesus is the only savior? If the answer is anything other than “can’t be done” stay tuned because; “I’m just a nobody trying to tell everybody, all about somebody that saved my soul.”
