From Ordinary to Extraordinary

Before Jesus Christ came into the world, the name Jesus (the Greek form of name Joshua) was an extremely common name. And yet, Jesus took an ordinary name of his day, and made it something unique and special—a name by which all can be saved (Acts 4:12).

Then, during His ministry, Jesus took the ordinary meal of a boy (a little bread and fish), and made it so extraordinary that fed 5,000 men (likely 10,000 or more people) (Matt. 14:13-21).

And also note Matt. 26:26-29 where Jesus took the common, ordinary elements of the fruit of the vine and unleavened bread and made them into special remembrances for His followers for all time.

Here’s the point I want you to understand: Jesus takes ordinary things and makes them extraordinary. You may feel common, plain, or ordinary, but know Jesus can make you into something special, into something extraordinary. That’s what He does! Won’t you let Him do His altering work on you today?
