Jesus was Fully Human, So He Listened to God

New Way to Be Human

John 5:19; 12:49; Luke 5:15-16. How can I discover what I’m here for? What is my purpose? How can I discover God’s will for my life? We’re often too busy talking—or listening to something else—to hear God speak. We know God’s will by listening to God speak. The question is never, Is God speaking? The question is, Are you listening?

From Series: "New Way to Be Human"

God is self-existent, reigning on high as the sovereign of this world, completely set apart in his holiness, all-powerful, all-knowing, perfect, totally good, and invisible. BUT...when the fullness of time had come, the infinite became finite. The invisible took on flesh. The Sovereign One humbled himself. The holy one became acquainted with sin. The Son of God became the Son of Man, and dwelt among us. Jesus was fully God and fully human. He was rejected by his own family, abandoned by his best friends, and felt the sting of being forsaken by God the Father himself. He was anxious and fearful. He was oppressed and depressed. He wept at the loss of a friend and became frustrated at his disciples’ ignorance. He seethed with anger at the injustices of the Roman Empire and the hypocrisy of the institutionalized religion of the day. Jesus was fully human. And it’s through his humanity that humanity can have its back against the wall, the whole world crumble around us, and experience the loss of all that we hold dear...and not fall apart. And not just keep from falling apart, but be fully human ourselves.
