VIII. MAIN BODY:
A. JESUS came to do GOD's will
"Then I said, Behold, here I am, coming to do Your will, O God"
Psalms 40:6-8 (Amplified Bible)
40:6 Sacrifice and offering You do not desire, nor have You delight in them; You have given me the capacity to hear and obey [Your law, a more valuable service than] burnt offerings and sin offerings [which] You do not require.
40:7 Then said I, Behold, I come; in the volume of the book it is written of me;
40:8 I delight to do Your will, O my God; yes, Your law is within my heart.
Hebrews 10:9-10 (Amplified Bible)
10:9 He then went on to say, Behold, [here] I am, coming to do Your will. Thus He does away with and annuls the first (former) order [as a means of expiating sin] so that He might inaugurate and establish the second (latter) order.
10:10 And in accordance with this will [of God], we have been made holy (consecrated and sanctified) through the offering made once for all of the body of Jesus Christ (the Anointed One).
John 4:34 (Amplified Bible)
4:34 Jesus said to them, My food (nourishment) is to do the will (pleasure) of Him Who sent Me and to accomplish and completely finish His work.
John 5:30 (Amplified Bible)
5:30 I am able to do nothing from Myself [independently, of My own accord—but only as I am taught by God and as I get His orders]. Even as I hear, I judge [I decide as I am bidden to decide. As the voice comes to Me, so I give a decision], and My judgment is right (just, righteous), because I do not seek or consult My own will [I have no desire to do what is pleasing to Myself, My own aim, My own purpose] but only the will and pleasure of the Father Who sent Me.
GOD's will is the salvation of all men and the LORD came to execute it.
2 Peter 3:9 (Amplified Bible)
3:9 The Lord does not delay and is not tardy or slow about what He promises, according to some people’s conception of slowness, but He is long-suffering (extraordinarily patient) toward you, not desiring that any should perish, but that all should turn to repentance.
