The Normal Life of Man

"He shall see of the travail of his soul and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities." (Isaiah 53:11)

The whole universe came into being by His Word. But now Jesus was limited in the human form. But He exhibited the infinite power of God. Jesus was accused of being a liar, a thief and a murderer. He willingly suffered as a sinner. The righteousness that you can receive by faith in the Cross has no limit. There was no violence in Jesus' mouth. He practiced what He preached. He never returned evil for evil. "Love your enemies; bless them that curse you ... and persecute you" (Matthew 5:44).

No one can practice this, but by the Cross of Jesus. As long as your sins are in you, you can never live the 12th chapter of Romans or the Sermon on the Mount. The Sermon on the Mount is the normal life of a man who believes in the Cross of Christ. When this life is not seen in you, you should feel sad. When you don't believe in the Cross, even your nervous reactions are under the power of the evil spirit. But when you believe on the Cross, you are released. When we remember the death of Jesus, it gives us the impetus towards perfection. By allowing our thoughts to rest on the cause of His death we are freed from the bondage of sin - freed to grow as saints and perfect beings. The evil spirit has no power over us.
