We have not a high priest not able to sympathize with our infirmities,...

We have not a high priest not able to sympathize with our infirmities, but tempted in all things in like manner, sin apart.
(Hebrews 4:15)

There are those who would use the truth of the real manhood of the Lord Jesus and His gracious, sympathetic identification with our humanity as an occasion to teach the false doctrine that He could have sinned. It is important for us when looking at this topic to adhere very closely to the words of Scripture and not to lean on our own reasoning.
The apostles: Peter, Paul and John, all have the same testimony on this subject, yet each apostle presents it with a different emphasis in keeping with his unique ministry and personality.
Th apostle Peter was a “doer”, a man of action, and his teaching is that Christ “did no sin.” Peter presents Christ as the model for the believer’s walk, describing Him as One “who did no sin” (1 Pet. 2:22). The Lord Jesus never, at any time, committed sin. This is a fact which no true Christian can possibly deny. Even the enemies of Christ bore witness to this. The Lord Jesus asked His inquisitors, “Which of you convinces Me of sin?” Pilate thrice declared Him to be guiltless (Lk. 23:4,15,22).
The apostle Paul, was a thinker, a theologian, and his testimony concerning Christ is, “He knew not sin” (2 Cor. 5:21). This statement goes further than Peter’s and shows that all of Christ’s thoughts and motives were absolutely without sin.
Lastly, we have apostle John, who of all of the disciples, was the most intimate with Christ. It was he who leaned on the bosom of the Lord (Jn. 13:23) and thus, John could write, “in Him sin is not” (1 Jn. 3:5). This means more than “He did no sin” or He “knew no sin.” Christ’s very nature was sinless! Indeed, he was a pure meal offering of “fine flour” in which there was absolutely “no leaven” (Lev. 2:1,11).

After seeing their plight, hearing their cries and feeling their pains, God came down to rescue the Israelites from Egypt. Our God is a mobile God. He comes down to deliver His own. As high as God is and even though He has His throne in Heaven, yet He condescends to meet the needs of His children on earth (Isaiah...More

Yesterday we discovered that our Lord Jesus Christ is the number one champion and that He makes His people champions. We also saw that a divine champion is a person raised up and supported by God.

One attribute of a champion is strength. The divine champion is one who receives divine strengthening. 1...More

Although it is an unpleasant experience to be a defeated contender, becoming an ex-champion is a much more grievous experience. When you are not yet a champion, only a few people pay attention to you. But by the time you become a champion, you will be on the radar of many people, including your enemies. A champion has...More
