People of God it is so important that we identify with Christ we are JUST LIKE JESUS! Adam failed, but God did not abandon the sinner to the power of sin. God declared war against the enemy, providing a way out. This good news was first declared in Genesis 3:15, “I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.” This “offspring,” or “seed,” is Jesus Christ our Lord (Genesis 3:15, Matthew 1:23-25 and Luke 1:31-35). He is the Christian’s substitute. He came to do what we were unable and unwilling to do. Just as We Are God’s substitute for sinners is a man. Jesus was and is today as human as we are. He was born of the Virgin Mary. He took His flesh and blood from His blessed mother. He lived a normal childhood. “And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men” (Luke 2:52). After a hard day’s work He was tired and hungry (see Matthew 4:20, Mark 6:31, and John 4:6-7). When His friend Lazarus died, Jesus wept (John 11:34-35). In the presence of sin Jesus became angry (Luke 3:7). He “has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet was without sin” (Hebrews 4:15). This full manhood of the Master is an important fact. We humans are sinful, “... for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). Each person must pay for their own sins. “Anyone who does wrong will be repaid for his wrong, and there is no favoritism” (Colossians 3:25). “The soul who sins is the one who will die” (Ezekiel 18:4). Our holy and just God demands this. Now, in perfect agreement with His own holiness and justice, God sent a substitute who is completely human. God’s work of salvation in Jesus is marvelous in our eyes. He sent a Savior suited to our needs, and perfectly fitted to take our place. *JESUS CHRIST is the sinner’s substitute. *GOD sent a substitute who is completely HUMAN.
