Immature Faith (Part 2)

by Pastor Afolabi Oladele

Are you walking in wisdom and in the purpose God wrote for your life? If your answer is in the affirmative, overcoming this natural tendency to fear is the reason that the Lord Jesus Christ laid down His life. Consider the truth laid out in out text for today—

For now he towers above all creation, for all things exist through him and for him. And that God made him, pioneer of our salvation, perfect through his sufferings, for this is how he brings many sons and daughters to share in his glory. Jesus, the Holy One, makes us holy. And as sons and daughters, we now belong to his same Father, so he is not ashamed or embarrassed to introduce us as his brothers and sisters! For he has said, “I will reveal who you really are to my brothers and sisters, and I will glorify you with praises in the midst of the congregation.”

And, “My confidence rests in God!” And again he says, “Here I am, one with the children Yahweh has given me.” Since all his “children” have flesh and blood, so Jesus became human to fully identify with us. He did this, so that he could experience death and annihilate the effects of the intimidating accuser who holds against us the power of death. By embracing death Jesus sets free those who live their entire lives in bondage to the tormenting dread of death
Hebrews 2:10-15 (TPT)

The following truths emerge:

  1. For now He towers above all creation, for all things exist through Him and for Him. So what could rebel against Him or you that cannot be put down by a rebuke in His name?
  2. Even if there is suffering, the assurance of coming out at the other end is in glory as was His case. In this regard, remember Daniel 7:13,14 when those who have conformed to His image as required of us in Romans 8:29, are presented in glory. This is why He laid down His life so none of His own will ever be intimidated by Satan using the fear of death and why Paul was emphatic in the declaration in 1 Corinthians 15:54-57; and
  3. In the place of fear, even when death comes, we embrace death as we commit the keeping of our spirits unto Him who has paid our debt of sin.

Are you ready? Selah.
