Jesus Christ: The Ideal
May 12, 2022

Today’s 333 Devotional: “Jesus Christ: The Ideal”

“Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” (Romans 5:1).

Jesus Christ was the ‘ideal’ man so that He could become man’s ‘ideal’ sacrifice and thus becoming God’s ‘ideal’ righteousness for all who believe.

In the beginning Adam blew it, and because of it, sin was passed down from generation to generation. It was for this reason that Jesus came and died so that we, who are Adam’s offspring, could have life through faith in Him.

“Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned.” (Romans 5:12)

But Paul went on to say that Adam was a type of Him who was to come, who by the gift of God’s grace would come and make right what Adam made wrong.

“But the free gift is not like the offense. For if by the one man’s offense many died, much more the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abounded to many.” (Romans 5:15)

Jesus came not like Adam, the first man, but as the second Man, the ‘ideal’ man to make right what Adam made wrong.

“For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.” (Romans 5:17)

Therefore, Jesus is the ‘ideal’ man who came to earth to live a sinless ‘ideal’ life. He never broke the Law, and never went against His Father’s will, thus becoming the ‘ideal’ man so that He could become the ‘ideal’ sacrifice so that we can now become God’s ‘ideal’ righteousness through Him.

Through Jesus’s resurrection He became our ‘ideal’ representation before the Father making us acceptable to God.

“The first man Adam became a living being. The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.” (1 Corinthians 15:45)
