This Week's Sermon: ( 3-29-16 )

" For we have not a high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. "   Hebrews 4:15


" These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. "   John 16:33

I have discussed some of the reasons God chose to become a human being, the main reason being, to keep those of us who believe in His Son Jesus, out of eternal hell.

My friend, merely believing in God and that there is a God does not save us from eternal hell.

We must also believe in Jesus.

Jesus clearly said;

" Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.  John 14:1

God wants fellowship with as many human beings as willingly will choose to believe in His Son, Jesus, unto eternal life.

Another reason God became a flesh and blood human being was to find out what it is like to be one of His own creation with all our weaknesses.

God wanted to subject Himself to temptation and experience our temptations, as the writer of Hebrews said;

" ...but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. "


In the human flesh of God's existence He actually " learned " obedience;

" Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; "   Hebrews 5:8

Also, in God's childhood growing up, He learned obedience;

" And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them: but his mother kept all these sayings in her heart.

And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man. "   Luke 2:51-52

As a result, because God overcame in His flesh, by our faith in Jesus we can also be overcomers and we can now have a relationship with God as He wants to have with us.

If we belong to God and continue to abide in Him, through our faith in His Son, Jesus, He shares everything He has with us for all eternity.

Wow!

Give your heart to Jesus before you die and stay with Jesus to the end.
