THE SON OF GOD - By Robert E. Hanna

Scripture Reading: Matthew 3:16,17

"[Christ Jesus] made Himself of no reputation, and took  upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness  of men: and being found in fashion as a man, He humbled  Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of  the cross" (Philippians 2:7, 8). " ... John seeth Jesus coming  unto him, and saith, Behold the lamb of God, which taketh  away the sin of the world" (John 1:29). The Son of God  became true man, that He might perform the work that He  was ordained to do. He was to be the substitutionary sacrifice  for mankind, that the shedding of His innocent blood might be  the way of redemption for all that should believe.

As the Son of God, Jesus Christ explicitly honored the will  of God the Father. His mission had been clearly prophesied: " ... He was numbered with the transgressors, and He bare the  sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors"  (Isaiah 53:12). As He agonized in prayer over the tortuous  death on Calvary, He pled, "Father, if thou be willing, remove  this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine be done"  (Luke 22:42). Knowing the inevitability of His approaching  suffering, He nevertheless declared total submission, saying,  "1 have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened  till it be accomplished" (Luke 12:50). He referred to His  baptism into death by crucifixion.

"For [God] hath made Him to be sin for us. [Him] who  knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God  in Him" (II Corinthians 5:21). "In whom we have redemption  through His blood, even the forgiveness of sins" (Colossians  1:14). " ... Forthis purpose the Son of God was manifested ... " (I  John 3:8).

How God Saves Men
Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
Read Romans 1:16, Romans 10:9-10 and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
