In the book Jesus on Trial, we learn of a very important detail that we should be speaking of more – Christ is the only one who divided history. He had to have made a supernatural impact on the world for that to be true.
Distinguishing from all others is that once He appeared Jesus struck history with such impact that He split it, dividing it into two periods: one before His coming, the other after it. NO ONE ELSE DID THIS! Even those who deny Jesus Christ is who He says He is are forced to date their attacks upon Him as B.C. and A.D.
On the week before His death and resurrection, Jesus Christ came riding into Jerusalem on a donkey. For the early followers of Jesus, this was a week that began with tremendous excitement and expectation and by the end of it the world was forever changed.

You could say life really boils down to this:
The old adage of no one on their deathbed ever said “I wish I spent more time at work” is so true. So what are you waiting for? What are you thinking on? What are your priorities?
Ecclesiastes shows the futile emptiness of trying to be happy and fulfilled apart from God. Power, popularity, prestige and pleasure apart from God are hollow victories!
