Jesus - The Perfect Man

Richard Waialeale

Hebrews 5:9 (NIV) 9 and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him
We all have ideas of what the perfect man should be. Some people think it is the man who obtains the perfect body by spending countless hours in the gym getting ripped.In the corporate world the perfect man might be someone like author Robert Ringer who wrote Winning through Intimidation, and Looking Out for No. 1. He’s the guy wrote many succeed in business books.What’s interesting is, how many people would think of Jesus?Jesus really was the perfect man.
My application is simply that I understand what Jesus did for me.Time and time again, the Bible shows us His enormous courage. He stood against the powers of his day, both religious and political.JESUS stared death in the face and didn’t back down.Endured beatings, and willingly stayed on the cross through unimaginable suffering.He was sensitive, gentle. Touched lepers. Wept over lost people. Took children into his arms to bless them. Ministered to hurting people and spent countless hours teaching and healing them. Stayed up all night praying.Died, then broke the grip of death in his resurrection. Jesus lives forever - part of God, who can never forget what it is like to be human.Many of the characteristics of Jesus can be formed in me. As I remember what he did for me, I work daily to be in His image, for His name sake.
Father my prayer is that I love as Jesus loved. Amen.
