The Perfect Example

God sent Jesus to come and redeem from the sons of men, sons for Himself to become part of His Kingdom. We read in John 1:12 “But as many as received Him(Jesus), to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name.” Jesus, the Son of God came to show us the way, to show us how to be sons of God. He was the PERFECT EXAMPLE. He came to show us that YOU CAN OVERCOME SIN IN THE FLESH, YOU CAN OBEY GOD IN THIS SINFUL FLESH and therefore He took on the same form as we are, He came as a man, flesh and blood to show us the way.
We read in Romans 8:29”For whom He foreknew, He also predestined TO BECOME CONFORMED TO THE IMAGE OF HIS SON, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren;” He has called us to be conformed to the image of His Son. We are not to be followers of other men. Jesus is the forerunner, Jesus is the example, the blueprint that we must follow if we want to be children of God. We must obey Him, His words. Jesus came and delivered to us the WORDS OF THE FATHER and He Himself obeyed those very same words so that we will have no excuse if we do not follow Him and obey those same words that He delivered, and that He lived by. He became totally obedient to the Father and in the same way we must become obedient to the Father.
We read in Hebrews 2:18 “For since He Himself was tempted in that which He has suffered, He is able to come to the aid of those who are tempted.” Jesus understands the temptations that we go through because He went through exactly the same temptations. He came as man in flesh and blood and He showed us the way. He proved to us that it is possible to obey God, to be sons of God in this wicked world amongst a wicked generation.
Jesus is the perfect example. We must not look at other men. Do not take another person, another man for your example. Jesus is our Teacher, He is our Lord, He is our Master and He sent us His Holy Spirit who will guide us every step of the way. We just need to tune in and LISTEN and OBEY and He will guide us into perfection. It is possible to be a son of God, to be perfectly obedient to God.
May Jesus bless you.
