For the world, Noah was a mad man who thought it would rain when all we've ever had was dew; for the world, Abraham had to be very stupid to set off at dawn with the aim of obeying an unseen voice commanding him to sacrifice the child he waited over seven decades for.

Think of the Messiah as the chart, as the means by whom you chat with GOD. Think of the Messiah as GOD, the cord between you and GOD. The broad view of GOD that stipulates a narrow crossing (way). Think of the Messiah as THE cross, a sacrifice, the greatest of all sacrifices.

I am best, gifted, when what I do is not from me. It is GOD who drives the car, sets in motion and flies in the air by HIS Will. To do GOD's Work, we need GOD because it is - after all - HIS work.
Where you are is where you carry truth to. You carry truth with you and nothing less or nothing else. Your presence should be true, your gift, truth; your person, truthful.
