Unstoppable Jesus

What is it about getting older that you (by which I mean I) seem to appreciate and listen to children more? If you do you discover that they come up with some wonderfully profound things sometimes. Take  the email I recently received from a grandmother friend of mine who was talking to her 7 year old grandson Charlie. She was looking at his note book where he had drawn a cross with a matchstick man on it with arms outstretches and two short vertical lines through the where the hands would be. So she asked him about it and he said with all the nonchalance in the world. "That's Jesus on the Cross. Do you know Grandma, I didn't realise Jesus was unstoppable"

What a great line! Well done Charlie. That is a great summary of the Easter story. Jesus was going to finish his work and nothing would stop him. Not the cross, the shame, the suffering or the most powerful nation on earth nor the devil and all his angels.
