About Jesus Christ

About Jesus Christ

In the beginning, God called forth the earth from the void, and He capped this feat with His masterpiece, man. Created in God’s own image, man was meant to fellowship with God, walking and talking with Him in the garden of Eden.

However, Adam, the first man, disobeyed God and lost his right to remain in the presence of a perfect and sinless God. Man’s fall resulted in his banishment from the garden, and the introduction of death in the world. Having an eternal spirit, this meant that man would die and suffer forever in hell.

But God, though a God of perfect justice, is also a God of love. And He had foreseen that man would fall. In His goodness and mercy, God devised a plan to redeem man and restore him to fellowship with Himself. In His plan, God would send His Son, Jesus Christ, to earth as a substitute for man. Born as a man Himself, Jesus would suffer and pay the price for man’s sin.

Long before Jesus was born, the prophet Isaiah had spoken about His coming: For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.   Isaiah 9:6–7

Jesus lived a sinless and perfect life for the 33 years that He was on earth. At the age of 30, He began His ministry, preaching, teaching, healing and touching the hearts and lives of people everywhere He went.

Luke 7:11–15 tells of the story of a widow whose only son had just died. Having previously lost her husband, the loss of her son not only added to her emotional trauma, but also left her without any means of financial support. Jesus heard her crying as He was passing by. Moved with compassion, He did not wait to be asked but went forward, raised the dead man from his funeral bier and returned him to his mother.

From this incident, as in many others, we not only see Jesus’ power and authority as the Son of God, but also His tender compassion and love for humanity. Perfect in all aspects, Jesus bridged the gap by becoming the God-Man: Completely divine, yet also completely human, the King of kings, yet Servant of all, our almighty God and Saviour is touched by and understands our infirmities and weaknesses.

    If Jesus was sin saved by grace, why is His work so mighty?

  2. King David says:

    For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ. 2 Corinthians 5:21

    Jesus Christ gave His own Life for us. He gave us physical life first, then He gave us spiritual life (which is life more abundant). He who has never sinned, came and took our sins for us, so we can be made right with God.

    Jesus took upon Himself the two most foreign concepts known to Him, the two most hated enemies of Him, the two most undefeatable enemies from man’s perspective: Sin and Death. Jesus versus Sin and Death is so opposite in magnitude, such a tremendous battle that took place at Calvary and a tomb, that the antithesis of these two are beyond expression. It’s like light and darkness. It’s like light wanting to become darkness so He could get rid of darkness. See, once Jesus was “made sin for us”, He became sin, thus He could get rid of sin.

    So how did He get rid of sin? Three days later He rose from the dead (life). He got the wages of holiness (life) and got rid of the wages of sin (death). It’s like how Joseph was made to go into poverty in Egypt, so He could get rid of poverty when the years of famine came. It’s like when Moses left Pharaoh’s house, humbled himself, so he could be in an even greater position in leading his people out of Egypt.

    I want to say that Jesus moved heaven and earth to be with us, but that is such an inadequate statement. He did SO MUCH MORE THAN THAT! It is beyond description. He left His throne of power to fight His and our enemies (sin and death), to be separated from the Father, just to be with me. He died spiritually before He died physically—just like how Adam did in the garden of Eden. The Second Adam got rid of sin and once that was gone, death never needs to be again. Death died the day Jesus rose from the dead. Sin died when Holiness became sin for us.
