"And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth." - John 1 V14
"Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men." - Philippians 2 V5-7
Christmas is the time when we think of our Lord Jesus Christ born in a manger, a helpless and poor baby. But from a true perspective, Christ became flesh, that is, God became flesh and He took the form of a baby and He served men and later died on the cross, so that through His death many may receive salvation and eternal life. Many people reject Jesus as God just because they do not believe God can take the form of a man. Yes, it is too profound for human understanding, but with God nothing is impossible. If Christ had not come in human flesh and paid the ultimate sacrifice for our sins, we all would have been lost in our sins and lost for eternity. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life (John 3 V16). Praise the Lord!
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
