Christ’s Life of Obedience
Passage: Luke 4:1-13
Takeaway: Many of us know the purpose of Christ’s death, but what was the purpose of his life? Christ lived a sinless life not just to make the perfect sacrifice; his obedience fulfilled the original commission given to humanity. Moreover, Christ entered the same trials and temptations we face yet remained faithful to God. His righteous obedience becomes our righteous obedience, earning our eternal blessings. How does Christ’s obedience encourage us in our attempts to obey? How does it comfort us in our failures?
