Success (Part 3)
We hear a lot about success in today’s world, not only from the secular world but also from the church world. Everybody wants to have success in their lives at some level, the definition of that success may vary but rarely do you find people who don’t want or like to succeed. The Bible is full of different successes through the ages. In this series of messages, we are going to look at several different accounts in Scripture where individuals and groups followed the Lord and achieved success. These accounts were written for our example, as we follow the faith that others demonstrated we will see success in our lives as well. All things are possible with God and all things are possible with the one who believes. SUCCESS!
Part 3 – Jesus took on our humanity. In order to have success in this life, we must understand the depth of what Jesus did in becoming human. Hebrews 2:18 says, “For because He Himself [in His humanity] has suffered in being tempted (tested and tried), He is able [immediately] to run to the cry of (assist, relieve) those who are being tempted and tested and tried [and who therefore are being exposed to suffering]. AMP. When we understand what Jesus has done for us in substitution we then can live in the success that He intended and accomplished in His death, burial, and resurrection.
