DAY 16 WEDNESDAY: SEPTEMBER 2020

JESUS CHRIST GLORIOUSLY FULFILLED HIS MINISTRY!

Then I said, “Behold, I have come- in the volume of the book it is written of Me- to do your will, o God” (Hebrews 10:7).

Jesus Christ who is the Son of God, the Savior and Lord of mankind gloriously fulfilled His ministry here on earth before He ascended into heaven in life. That is the reason why He remains our everlasting model in life and ministry. In the opening text, the Bible tells us that then I said, “Behold, I have come- in the volume of the book it is written of Me- to do your will, o God.” Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God expects him to finish his ministry gloriously like Jesus Christ did in life.  Jesus Christ came to do the will of the Father and He gloriously fulfilled it in life. Finishing gloriously and triumphantly is the absolute will of God for all Christians in life forever.

The mission of Jesus Christ was to do the work of the Father which He gloriously fulfilled on the cross when He cried, “It is finished!” (John 19:30). That is why the Bible tells us in John 17:4, “I have glorified You on the earth. I have finished the work which You have given Me to do.” Therefore, a Christian should strive as much as possible to fulfill the will of the Father by finishing his ministry gloriously to the glory of God. Jesus Christ came, saw and conquered on the cross of Calvary. Since He had gloriously fulfilled His ministry; therefore, He is our Lord and Savior in life and ministry. A Christian should take advantage of the divinity of Jesus Christ to fulfilling his ministry in life forever.

Having gloriously fulfilled His ministry, He became our everlasting model in life and ministry. That is the reason why the Bible tells us in Hebrews 12:2, “Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” In fact, whenever a Christian learns to look up to Jesus Christ who is the Author and Finisher of his faith, definitely he is bound to finish his ministry gloriously in his life to the glory of God. Every Christian should endeavor to set his standard in Christ Jesus in order to finish well his ministry in life forever.

Daily Tip: Jesus Christ is our standard and everlasting model in life and ministry to the glory of God the Father forever. Shalom!
