The Mystery of Mysteries in All of History

December 9, 2022
Immanuel, God is with us. The Son of God, being eternal God, of one substance with the Father, equal with the Father, infinite, perfect, pure in Spirit, invisible, without body, unchangeable, almighty, creator of the universe put on human flesh and dwelt amongst us. That is the greatest mystery in all of history. God became man without losing any of His God-ness. His name is Jesus Christ.

But how? Jesus, the God-man, the Son of God, Immanuel, has two complete and perfect natures - divine and human. The Godhead and the manhood are inseparably joined together in One person without change, mixing together or confusion. Jesus is absolutely God and absolutely man, making Him the one and only perfect mediator between God and man.

But why? The Son of God’s motivation in becoming human was to redeem us. The incarnation was the only way that we could be saved from our transgressions, iniquity and sin. God the Son took on flesh and died, as a man, so that death itself would die. Sin had separated us from God, but the incarnation bridges the separation. The incarnation is full of endless hope for eternity but it is also for our perseverance to endure whatever may come today as we struggle in this sinful world.

Because the Son of God put on flesh and experienced every one of your human struggles and temptations (Heb. 2:17-18), God looks upon your life with great compassion. You have a God who sympathizes with you in all your weaknesses and He wants you to know that you will receive mercy and find grace to help in every one of your times of need (Hebrews 4:15-16). No matter what you have experienced or will experience in the future, Christ wants you to know that He has already struggled with that struggle in His flesh. You can be confident that Jesus, the Son of God with a human nature has been in your time of need, endured your weaknesses, insults, hardships and calamities, which makes Him more than able to give you sufficient, compassionate, divine power for you to persevere and even boast in all your weaknesses (2 Cor. 12:9-10).

See you Sunday, praising God incarnate, Steve
