Jesus and God´s will

Peace on you dear friends! I am glad about having another opportunity to share the word of wisdom from the Lord with you. The Bible says that wisdom makes the face of a man radiant.  
«They looked to him, and were radiant. Their faces shall never be covered with shame.» (Psalms 34:5)
 God placed us into this world for only one reason – to fulfil His will. Today´s topic is “Jesus and God´s will”. Jesus is our model in everything. He is the Author, the Master and the Maintainer of our faith. Therefore, Jesus set an example for us, so that we can follow his steps.  
«For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving you an example, that you should follow his steps» (1 Peter 2:21).
 From the very beginning of His life on this Earth Jesus was clearly aware of His goal. He was extraordinary passionate to the business of His Father in His Spirit.There is a story from Jesus childhood in the Bible, it tells us how He was growing and becoming strong in spirit, increasing in wisdom and stature. Jesus had a good reputation both in the eyes of God and in the eyes of people.  
«The child was growing, and was becoming strong in spirit, being filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was upon him … and Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and men.» (Luke 2:40,52).
 Jesus studied the law of God in order to know everything written in Torah and in prophets. The Gospel of Luke tells us how Jesus interpreted all the prophecies about His coming on Earth starting from the time of Moses and all through the prophets. Later on resurrected from death, Jesus showed Himself up to the two disciples on their way to Emmaus. Those two were reasoning about the recent events related to His death and resurrection. Suddenly, Jesus Himself revealed to them but they didn´t recognise Him.«Behold, two of them were going that very day to a village named Emmaus, which was sixty stadia from Jerusalem. They talked with each other about all of these things which had happened. It happened, while they talked and questioned together, that Jesus himself came near, and went with them. But their eyes were kept from recognizing him. He said to them, 
“What are you talking about as you walk, and are sad?”» (Luke 24:13-17).
 After the disciples had shared their sad stories and disappointment with Jesus, He began to explain in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.  
«Some of us went to the tomb, and found it just like the women had said, but they didn’t see him.” He said to them, “Foolish men, and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken! Didn’t the Christ have to suffer these things and to enter into his glory?” Beginning from Moses and from all the prophets, he explained to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.» (Luke 24:25- 27).
 Those two disciples were mourning about Jesus crucifixion. Even more, they were astonished to hear that women who visited the place where Jesus was buried didn´t find His body, but met angels who announced that Jesus is alive. Jesus wanted to help the disciples to understand that all those things didn´t happen accidentally, but are the fulfilment of God´s will on Earth. For this reason Jesus started with Torah and went through all books of prophets, explaining what was written about Himself. Jesus knew God´s will, because He had studied the Scriptures!Studying the life of Jesus in the New Testament you may notice He exactly carried out the route set for His life by God. Jesus fulfilled every prophecy written about Him long before He was born. How could He know everything about that? Probably because He was the second person of God? Surely not! Jesus clearly understood His mission and His goal, because He had constant fellowship with Father and studied the law of God. It was His life style that made Him know the God´s will for His life.And there is the word of God for you today: follow Jesus in your daily studies of God´s word, so that you can get to know and fulfil the God´s will for your life.Let the good God bless you!See you tomorrow!Rufus Adjiboye, pastor

  1. Thanks for your article it has been very helpful. Just one correction though. This scripture They looked to him, and were radiant. Their faces shall never be covered with shame is found in Psalm 35 vs 5. Thanks again for your resources.
