Following Jesus’ Example: Is It Possible?

Is it really possible to live like Jesus lived?

If we focus on the wide chasm between the divinity of Jesus and the weakness of human flesh it is easy to think of such an assignment as impossible.

Another point of view places Jesus in His life on earth and mankind in much closer proximity. “The Word (Jesus) became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory!”  (John 1:14).


How do Hebrews 2:14-17 and Hebrews 4:15 describe the extent to which Jesus identified with our human fleshly experience?

What about man? Are we hopelessly destined to failure? Hows does 1 Corinthians 10:13 help with this question?

    Jesus came not in an angelic nature, but became flesh taking on the seed of Abraham. He came to make atonement for our sins.

    “God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able. . .” He helps us to resist sinful temptations. With God’s help, we are not destined for failure.

    Thanks Connie. Jesus taking on the flesh doesn’t have to diminish His divinity in our minds. While in the flesh He accepted men’s praise. What it does do, for me at least, is magnify how great His love for us was – being God yet willing to become flesh and pay the price of sin.
