The fact that Jesus Christ led a sinless life is well-known to His followers (I Peter 2:22, Hebrews 4:15, I John 3:5).
I don’t know about you, but I don’t spend nearly enough time pondering why this is so.
The truth is, it’s a critically important aspect of the Gospel, and for very good reason.
I’m at Satisfaction Through Christ today, considering Jesus’ sinless life and the implications it bears for you and for me, at Christmas and always.
Here’s an excerpt:
I love the Christmas season.
I enjoy the anticipation.
The sweet treats and the glow of candles.
The hustle and bustle, and the quiet and tender.
It seems that my thirst for pondering time is unquenchable during this time of year.
Pondering the amazing reality of a baby born to die, that I might live.
But my pastor recently preached about another reality that I tend to overlook.
Jesus wasn’t a baby born only to die; He was a baby born to live.
He was born to live a perfectly sinless life.
A completely righteous life.
And this is a critically important aspect of the Gospel.
