For it was indeed fitting that we should have such a high priest, holy, innocent, unstained, separated from sinners, and exalted above the heavens.
Jesus lived a sinless life. Stop and think about that for a minute! This mind-bending truth separates Jesus from all others who have walked on this earth. He was the perfect God-man who NEVER sinned!
The apostle John wrote that no book could contain all of the wonders of the life of Jesus. There is no human explanation for His miraculous birth and perfect life apart from the fact that He is who He claimed to be—the eternal Son of God and Savior of the world.
Yet, this wonderful fact of the sinlessness of Jesus doesn’t mean that He can’t relate to you and me as sinners. Remember, He took on human flesh as a baby in
Jesus was born, to save an imperfect, unsaved world. And unless He had lived that perfect life, we would be doomed! So praise God today for His precious gift of His perfect Son who bought our salvation through His sinless blood that flowed on the cross to pay the price for our sin.
EVEN THOUGH HE IS SINLESS, CHRIST LOVES SINNERS LIKE YOU AND ME AND REDEEMED US THROUGH HIS DEATH ON THE CROSS!
