In most cases, Scripture draws us in with stories that honestly portray people’s mistakes, faithlessness, and selfishness. We grab on to Bible characters like King David and Mary Magdalene because they’re real, and they’re like us—imperfect with potential.
However, there is one man who escapes with a clean record, void of mistakes, faithlessness, and selfishness. He is unlike even the most faithful men in the Bible who fall hard at least once, twice, or a dozen times. He is, of course, the Son of God. We have no record of Jesus’ slightest disobedience toward His Father or minor deviations in carrying out God’s plan. He was absolutely faultless.
He is shockingly different from the people who merely pretend to be perfect in our day. Jesus welcomes us into His presence. In fact, one of Jesus’ most common commands is simply, “Come.” Christ is the God of the universe in the skin of man asking us to come to Him!
As we explore the person and theology of the Son of Man this month, we’ll view Jesus Christ as truly God, truly man, and our risen Lord. May we use these truths to keep answering Jesus’ call to “come.”
We would like to thank you for your prayers and support of Today in the Word this year. Your faithfulness has allowed us to share Christ’s perfect example with thousands of people each month.
