“Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.’ ”

John 11:25

 

 

“For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.”

Hebrews 4:15

 

 

 

“He was manifested to take away our sins, and in him there is no sin.”

1 John 3:5

 

 

“Who committed no sin, nor was deceit found in His mouth.”

1 Peter 2:22

 

 

“He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”

2 Corinthians 5:21

 


Perfection!

He had preached no sermon.
He had done no miracles.
He had not healed anyone.
He had not cast out any demons.
He had not walked on water.
Then, at thirty years old he was baptised by John in the River Jordan.
At that point, God’s voice rang out from heaven:“You are my beloved Son; in you I am well pleased.” Luke 3:22

Why was God well pleased with Him?
Purity! For 30 years, Jesus had not sinned. He had never sinned in thought, word, or deed in all those years. Just imagine that!
Could we live even 30 minutes without going wrong?
No wonder his Father was well pleased.

Let’s never forget that he gained our salvation by those 30-odd years of his life, not just the 3 years of his public ministry. From birth right through to his death on the Cross of Calvary, he gave himself to save you and me from God’s judgement. He lived a perfect life in order to be a substitute for our very imperfect lives.

“Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us.” Titus 2:13-14

The Beauty of Jesus

Nearly a thousand years before Jesus was born, King Solomon wrote the ‘Song of Songs’. It is one of the books in the Bible.
He is altogether lovely!” Song of Songs 5:16.
Like several other Old Testament writers, Solomon wrote things that referred to Jesus long before our Saviour came to Earth. One instance is quoted above. Another example is, “You are fairer than the sons of men; grace is poured upon your lips.” Psalm 45 verse 2.

In the 4th verse of that same Psalm we read, “In your majesty ride prosperously because of truth, humility, and righteousness.” Those three virtues were perfectly displayed in the life of the Lord Jesus Christ while he lived on earth.

It is good for us to meditate on the beauty of Jesus, on his perfection.
When he lived on Earth, he was completely human in soul, mind and body. Even so, in no way was he contaminated by the sin of Adam that had infected the whole of humanity.
Miraculously born of a human mother, Jesus did not inherit that human sin nature like everyone else.

Jesus was, and is, totally pure, and that perfect holiness is what makes him ‘Altogether lovely.’

No Fault

Nothing wrong at all?
Hated by the religious leaders.
Crowds clamouring for him to be executed.
Betrayed by one of his own disciples.
Deserted by most of his other disciples.
Was there no-one who could rescue him from being nailed to a Roman cross?
Well, certainly none of the Gospel accounts give any hint that even the most prominent of his disciples attempted to rescue their Master.

But wait a minute. There was a man, just one man who did his best to rescue Jesus from his accusers.
Unbelievably, it was the man who represented the power of the Roman Empire – none other than Pontius Pilate, the Governor of Judea! Yes, the very man who had supreme power in that small country.
Just read these words that the apostle John wrote about the occasion.
“Pilate then went out again, and said to them, ‘Behold, I am bringing Him out to you, that you may know that I find no fault in Him.’ ” John 19:4
Three times in John’s Gospel he records those words, ‘I find no fault in Him.’

Pilate did not know he was uttering the amazing truth upon which the whole of God’s plan of salvation rested.
The New Testament from beginning to end testifies to the eternal truth that there was no fault in the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus was, is, and always will be absolutely perfect. The perfect Saviour of sinners.
Absolutely nothing wrong with him.
Perfection.
Wonderful!

“In him there is no sin.”
