God Provided What God Demanded

“Jesus said to them, ‘My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to accomplish His work.'” John 4:34 (NASB)
Christ is God’s perfect ideal of what man should be. Jesus came into the world on a singular mission: To do the will of God; and He is the only one who ever did God’s will perfectly. Just before He was crucified He lifted His eyes to heaven and said, “I glorified You on the earth, having accomplished the work which You gave Me to do” (John 17:4). In every minute detail of His life, ministry, and miracles; whatever, whenever, wherever Jesus was, His eye was single, looking to the Father–and His heart was set on doing the will of the One who sent Him.
He finished the work He came to do, He purchased redemption, He fulfilled the law. He laid down His life, He bore our sins in His own body on the cross–and He did it willingly. “…The man Christ Jesus; who gave Himself a ransom for all. . .”(1 Tim. 2:5-6). No one but “Himself” could pay the price. Nothing less could have satisfied God; and just as truly as nothing else could have satisfied God, nothing else is needed to satisfy God; for in Jesus, God provided what God demanded. Only God could have provided the sacrifice for sin.
