There are some who believe Jesus came into this world with all the knowledge of God. They think because He was the Son of God, He didn’t have to spiritually mature. That’s not true according to scripture.

According to John 8:28, Jesus was taught by God. He was taught by God by separating Himself from everything else and communing with God (Matt. 14:23). Jesus wasn’t immune to temptation. He was tempted to do sinful things too according to Hebrews 4:15, but He resisted temptation and learned to obey (Heb. 5:8). Finally, according to Luke 4:16, Jesus customarily read scripture.

Separating Himself to be taught by God, resisting temptation and obeying God, and studying the scriptures of God. These are the tools Jesus used to fulfill His purpose in the earth.

If Jesus utilized these tools to fulfill His purpose, we too need to utilize these tools to fulfill our purpose.

Let’s utilize these tools accompanied with our faith to do everything God has called us to do.

John 4:34 Jesus explained, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to finish His work.
