Throughout the landscape of the New Testament we encounter a Christ that at times appears to showcase qualities that are opposite His nature. For instance, He never sleeps and never slumbers, and yet, there He is asleep in the boat in the midst of a storm. He never forgets and never fails, and yet there He is, absent when Mary and Martha need Him most as their brother Lazarus dies, even though Jesus said that Lazarus’ sickness would NOT end in death. He is the victor, and yet, to the naked eye the Cross seemed to showcase Jesus as the one defeated. In all these stories and more, what looks like a Christ who has fallen short is, in actuality, a Christ about to perform His most gargantuan feats. Could it be that the same is true right now in history?
