As God come in the flesh, Jesus isn’t just our Savior and our Lord,
He is also our model.
That might not sound all that earth-shattering to you, but I believe you’ll realize as you read this book that…
Jesus’ role as our model should have just as much impact on our lives as the fact that He is our Lord and Savior.
This is because Jesus, though always God, deliberately chose to limit His divine attributes and power in order not only to show us who God is but also to demonstrate for us what the normal Christian life should look like.
Jesus used spiritual disciplines to walk with the Father, and develop and learn as we do: “Jesus grew in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man” (Luke 2:52).
Jesus also used spiritual gifts (not His inherent power) to actually carry out His ministry while on earth.
And He used the promptings He received from the Father and the Spirit to lead His disciples into moments of revival.
