THE LEGACY YOU LEAVE IS THE LIFE YOU LEAD.
2. Jesus Was A Dependent Man.
Jesus did nothing on His own; He acted only as the Father desired and enabled (John 5:19-30). He moved into His ministry as Messiah, the Spirit’s public identification with Him at His baptism demonstrated that all He did was through the fullness and power of the Holy Spirit. ” The descent of the Holy Spirit empowered the Son, the Messiah, for His ministry among people.” Luke 4:1-14 makes this abundantly clear. As Jesus faced the greater demands of His messianic ministry, He also received the enabling power of the Holy Spirit for all He did and became the model for all we do.
Jesus is the prototype, the pattern, and master copy for how we live. We live the way He lived, dependent on the power of the Holy Spirit, which enables us to leave the same legacy of glory as He. Though we are radically different from Him—He, the Son of God, we the children of God—we can only live in the fullness and power of the Holy Spirit just as He lived.
