God with us

In John 1:14, John writes that the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us.  Jesus Christ is an incredible person.  He was the perfect union of God and man.  He was 100% God and yet 100% man.  He was God with a face.  He was virgin born and this enabled Him to be the perfect sacrifice for sin.  The writer of Hebrews puts it this way.  Jesus in all ways was tempted like us but without sin.  Jesus faced all the same problems and difficulties that we faced but He did not sin.  Jesus faced His temptation in the wilderness with the devil with no thought of losing but only victory.  He knew who He was and what He had come to do and this enabled Him to defeat the devil.  The temptation is a model for us to follow when facing the devil.  Use the word and refuse to give into the lies he uses.  Jesus is the perfect role model for us to follow.  If we live our lives like He did we will become the disciples God wishes us to be.  Jesus’ only goal was to do the will of the Father that should be ours as well.  He walked in love, acceptance and forgiveness and that should be our desire.  Jesus had extended prayer times to know the will of the Father we should as well.  Jesus knew His purpose in life was to glorify the Father.  Is this your aim in life?  Today begin reading the gospels and examine the life of Christ very closely and there you will find the will of God for your life.  Your promises today are:  Matt 6:33, John 9:31, Rom 8:27, 12;1-2, Phil 2:13 and 1 Thess 5:16-18.  Your Insightful Thought for today is:  You can be aware of time and places and not be aware of where you are in life.
