Jesus Christ our Lord lived on earth and suffered all the temptations every human being suffers but was without sin. He was tempted with the lust of the eye, the lust of the flesh, and the cravings of the sinful nature but did not succumb to them.
Jesus is the best example to follow so far as holiness is concerned. Holiness is love towards God; it is man’s desire to obey the Lord and fulfil His desire. To be holy is to refuse to obey the devil. It means saying ‘Yes’ to Jesus and living for Him. Out of deep love Jesus obeyed and respected the Father and said ‘No’ to the devil.
Jesus lived such a holy life among the Jews that at the end of His life no accusation of corruption, theft, or immorality could be levelled against Him.
Jesus is a very good example of personal devotion. He consistently and persistently waited upon the Lord. He never did anything without asking the Father through prayer.
