Examining The Scriptures Daily 2014 with biblical texts
Monday, December 1Look! I am come . . . to do your will, O God.—Heb. 10:7.
With these meaningful words, Jesus presented himself to God to carry out all that was foretold about the promised Seed, including his being ‘bruised in the heel’ by Satan. (Gen. 3:15) No other human has ever volunteered to shoulder such a heavy responsibility. From heaven, Jehovah voiced his complete trust in his Son. (Luke 3:21, 22) Jesus always practiced what he preached by letting his “Yes mean Yes.” (Matt. 5:37) He allowed nothing to sidetrack him from the commission he received from his Father to preach the good news of God’s Kingdom and to make disciples of all whom God drew to Jesus. (John 6:44) The Bible describes the extent of Jesus’ truthfulness in these well-known words: “No matter how many the promises of God are, they have become Yes by means of him.” (2 Cor. 1:20) Indeed, Jesus is the finest example of one who proved true to what he promised his Father. w12 10/15 4:3, 4
^ (Heb. 10:7) Then I said: ‘Look! I have come (in the scroll it is written about me) to do your will, O God.’”
^ (Gen. 3:15) And I will put enmity between you and the woman and between your offspring and her offspring. He will crush your head, and you will strike him in the heel.”
^ (Luke 3:21, 22) Now when all the people were baptized, Jesus too was baptized. As he was praying, the heaven was opened up, 22 and the holy spirit in bodily form like a dove came down upon him, and a voice came out of heaven: “You are my Son, the beloved; I have approved you.”
^ (Matt. 5:37) Just let your word ‘Yes’ mean yes, your ‘No,’ no, for what goes beyond these is from the wicked one.
^ (John 6:44) No man can come to me unless the Father, who sent me, draws him, and I will resurrect him on the last day.
^ (2 Cor. 1:20) For no matter how many the promises of God are, they have become “yes” by means of him. Therefore, also through him is the “Amen” said to God, which brings him glory through us.
