Msg #1829 Do What Jesus Did

What The Bible Says

Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice

 

The things that Christ did while made in the likness of men he did because he was one with the Father. We often hear it said, “Of course he did no sin, ... he was God,” or “Of course he knew their thoughts, ... he was God,” or “Of course he could raise the dead, ... he was God.” A careful read of Scripture reveals he did not do these things in his own power, he did them because he was in perfect union with the Father. A Christian is to be in perfect union with the Father and that is why Jesus said, “He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also” (John 14:12). Many Scriptures come into clearer focus when we acknowledge that for 33 years Christ operated in the same flesh that we live in. John 5:10 declares, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself.” Granted, Christ, not born of the seed of man, had no sin nature drawing him to sin, but he was every bit as flesh and blood as you or I. Christ didn't do his own will (John 6:38), nor teach his own doctrine (7:16-18 ), it was the Father's. All he did in those 33 years he did in the power of the Father. You and I can and need to do the same. Christ took upon him the form of a servant (Phil 2:7), and operated here with the same rules that a believer operates under. When Christ rose victorious over death the Father restored him to the glory he had before the world was (John 17:1,5). Until we join him we are to live like he did, in complete surrender to the Father.
