3 For [gar] what the law [nomos] could not do [adunatos], in [en] that [hos] it was weak [astheneo] through [dia] the flesh [sarx], God [theos] sending [pempo] his own [heautou] Son [huios] in [en] the likeness [homoioma] of sinful [hamartia] flesh [sarx], and [kai] for [peri] sin [hamartia], condemned [katakrino] sin [hamartia] in [en] the flesh [sarx]: KJV-Interlinear
3 For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, ESV
God has provided salvation and eternal life by means of His work on the cross, and made available to us, through faith.
The Mosaic law identifies the perfect life, however the flesh, being weakened by the sin nature, prevents that perfect life.
Since no man was able to live the perfect life, and therefore qualify as a legitimate sacrifice in payment for sin, then God had to become man, which means God became the likeness of man, in order to do what the common man is incapable of doing.
Jesus Christ, is God.
Jesus Christ was born as a human male, in order to live among humanity as a man.
Jesus Christ was exposed to sin, while in the flesh, but never succumbed to sin.
Therefore, Jesus Christ condemned sin, while in the flesh, and then fulfill the payment in full of sin, while in the flesh.
And this is a work that no other human being is capable of doing.
Jesus was born an infant baby, He grew up for thirty years to adulthood, He conducted His ministry for three-and-a-half-years beyond that, He suffered heart aches and pressures and temptations galore, even being nailed to the cross. And He never committed even a single sin.
He conducted His life in perfection.
He fulfilled His work in perfection.
And He is the only person that was qualified for, and capable of, completing the work of salvation.
Study [by instruction],
to show thyself approved [spiritually mature]
a workman [student]
that need not be ashamed [ignorant],
rightly dividing [learning, understanding, discerning]
the word of truth [Bible doctrine].
If you can dream and not make dreams your master,
If you can think and not let thoughts narrow your views,
If you can meet triumph with disaster equally,
If you can learn and see your full meaning and purpose in life,
Then you can believe in Christ, learn Bible doctrine, and grow far beyond the potential that God has prepared for you.
These studies, are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, that is easily accessible, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.
And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.
To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.
The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.
But you have to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.
