Jesus Was Human

September 29, 2013

Greetings,

“Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, 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 sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are – yet was without sin.  Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”  Hebrews 4: 14-16

I am just home now from an afternoon of excellent fellowship.  Jesus definitely met us exactly where we needed Him to.  We were few in number because two families had to cancel at the last moment because of vehicle breakdowns, but the flow of the Holy Spirit was very sweet and we were all blessed to our very core during our simple time of gathering together in His Name.  We sang, prayed, read some scripture, shared and broke bread together with glad and sincere hearts.  

Today the Lord had us focus upon how Jesus completely understands our weaknesses and struggles in life.  Because Jesus was born a fully mortal human and lived 33 years as one of us.  Philippians 2 makes it totally clear that Jesus became a mere man while here on earth and He emptied Himself of any Godlike powers or advantage in order to walk among us here as a humble servant of all.  Jesus understands being human and He faced trials and temptations just as we do every single day. The example Jesus set for us was how to properly respond to any given situation in the Spirit instead of the flesh.  Jesus did not heal people or perform miracles as God, He did so as a normal person with the power of the Holy Spirit working in Him.  I feel that we always need to be reminded that God can and will work miracles through us also, if we would only surrender and respond to the Spirit’s leading and walk as Jesus did.

We closed our time together by going boldly before the throne of grace together seeking His mercy and grace to help us with our current needs and afflictions.  Some needed healing, others needed God’s intervention concerning health insurance and medication issues.  We also prayed for loved ones in need of Jesus.  Laura seemed to enjoy our time together and every adult there got to share and contribute to our simple gathering.  I just love totally free and open, Spirit led fellowship and in over 30 years of meeting this way I can honestly say I have never been disappointed.  The Holy Spirit is fully able to lead, teach and inspire without the need of any recognized or official human Leadership.  What can I say?  God is good enough!

Love and….

    Amen, Chris. I really believe one of the greatest things Jesus did was demonstrate how the life of a human being can be lived when actively participating with the Spirit of God within them. “As He was in this world, so are we.” Means alot to me. “BK”
