Like Us In Every Way
Sin brings so many severe and awful consequences into our lives. In order to free us from them all, Jesus became just like us, suffering the smart of every one of those consequences. Through this series, weâ€™ll gain a renewed appreciation for exactly what it is from which we have been rescued and all that Jesus went through to make such a rescue possible. Â Jesus became Like Us In Every Wayâ€¦well, every way except one â€“ he was perfect in our place.
When we look at Jesus, it’s like we look in the mirror. He looked like us. Lived like us. Felt like us. Yet, he also serves as a mirror that reveals where we have failed, but he has succeeded and overcome. Because of his victory, when God looks at us he sees the reflection of his own dear Son.
â€œTherefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we areâ€”yet he did not sin. Let us then approach Godâ€™s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.â€ (Hebrews 4:14-16).View Series Messages
