Sometimes it is hard to relate to Jesus when dealing with our relationship with sin because He is God. I think we want to believe that being God gave Him some special ability to make it impossible for Him to sin and since we are not God we do not have that and so we have an excuse even if we do not admit that we use it as such. I think we forget that He was also human and was tempted even as we, yet without sin. Often times we hear how no one can keep the commandments. I believe this is nothing but an excuse to justify our sin. Jesus was human even as we and if Jesus obeyed all God wanted I believe we also can do the same. I do not believe it is an issue of impossibility, but of personal choice which reveals the sinfulness of our hearts. While we know that the Lord never sinned, Heb 4:15, was He super human or do you think that He was just as vulnerable to temptation as we are yet He overcame it? We are admonished to be as Christ in all our living and unless that is possible the command is a cruel calling. I hold that if we are honest, instead of pious, and do a real evaluation of our hearts we do not want to be as holy as Jesus, thus we choose sin. I do not believe that His being God gave Him some special edge or helped Him in rejecting the temptation of sin above what He does in us once we are saved. What are your thoughts?
