Jesus Tried to Avoid Confrontations

Matthew 12:14-21


Even in seclusion, Christ worked cures.

He was discreet; His mystery was key.

Jesus fulfilled Isaiah’s prophecy.

Jesus Christ is the suffering Servant.


Jesus brought the light of truth to the world.

His personage was gentle and discreet.

Humble Jesus would achieve victory.

He fulfilled the hopes of the believers.


John Perkins exemplifies Jesus Christ.

John does not return evil for evil.

He left school after third grade.  Now he has

Seventeen honorary doctorates.


John Perkins says, “Love is the final fight.”

After we share, we receive so much more.
