“I can’t comment on one book as we have gone through most of them. There is not one that has not taught us something we haven’t thought of before. We are thanking God for you and for your ministry.”

Two Ways to Be Human

To be human is to be a sinner.

To err is human, and so is to sin.

That’s how we often see things, anyway. But, in fact, humanity was not created to sin, and sin is not part of our original design.

Therefore, if someone were to live a life completely free of sin, they would be acting in a more human way than the rest of us.

This is what Jesus did.

Jesus lived a sinless life and He is ready to help you to overcome sin because He overcame sin perfectly.

So what did this life look like?

Here is where it gets interesting. If Jesus hadn’t started preaching the kingdom of God and doing miracles, He would not have been recognized as a unique man of God.

He started His ministry when He was about thirty years old. By that time, He had been living a sinless life for thirty years and yet nobody seemed to have noticed. In fact, the people who knew Him best, the people of Nazareth and even members of His own family, rejected His ministry. They knew Him so well, they were convinced that He was a normal guy, not a great prophet.

Sinless humanity is normal humanity. It is the natural way to be human. In this sense, Jesus was more normal than we sinners are. It is sin that is unnatural and even anti-human.

Yet it seems so easy and natural for us to sin.

This is because we have it backwards. Jesus set it straight.

If we want to overcome sin and live the lives that we were meant to live, we will have to re-learn everything we thought we knew about humanity from the greatest human who ever lived.

In other words, we will have learn to be human from God, for Jesus is also God just as He is fully human.

Jesus said to His disciples, “He who has seen Me has seen the Father” (John 14:9).

You and I may never be able to comprehend exactly how Jesus could be God and man at the same time, but here He assures us, as He assured His disciples, that His humanity didn’t conceal His divinity from us, it revealed it.

For Jesus, being human wasn’t incompatible with being God. For you, being human isn’t incompatible with being holy.

You were created to be holy as certainly as you were created human.

Learn from Jesus how to be human, and you will find that He has also made you holy.

This has been a summary of chapter one of A Life Has Been Lived for You.

“…but Paul was also super passionate and personal in his letters. He lived the doctrine, and his life is part of the context necessary to understand his letters.”

“Despite all the cultural differences, human nature doesn’t change, and Paul understood it and spoke to it. He also understood himself, and revealed himself in order to point to Christ.”
