The Birth of Jesus The Messiah, The Savior
The word “incarnation,” like many other words used by Christians, does not appear in the Bible, but the concept is clearly Biblical. Incarnation is defined as “to become flesh or human.” John 1:14 “And the Word was made 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.” This is a beautiful description of The Incarnation of Jesus Christ the Savior, the Messiah.
Jesus Christ is The Person, The Word, Who has forever existed – with no beginning and no end.
John 1:10-12 “He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not. He came unto His own, and His own received Him not. But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name:”
Jesus so loved the fallen human race that He became flesh and entered into the world as a Babe in the little Judean town of Bethlehem. This event was Biblically prophesied 600 years before the fact in the book of Micah, Chapter 5, Verse 2.
Jesus the Christ was born as the Perfect One into a sinful world. Just imagine a thankless mankind, hating, disobeying and cursing the Very God who created and provided for them. Yet He still loved the entire world, so much that He chose to give Himself as the necessary sacrifice to pay the required penalty of our sin. He is the substitute for each of us. Jesus Christ was born to die, thus satisfying the eternal death penalty we deserve. He surrendered Himself, was put to death, was buried and rose from the grave under His own power, thus proving He is God.
Look again at the verse John 1:10-12 above. In an act of Divine Mercy and Grace, God so loved disobedient humankind that He GAVE an undeserving world the GIFT of Salvation in Christ. This GIFT is available to anyone and everyone who will RECEIVE it by believing, trusting in Jesus alone for everlasting life. (Ref. John 3:16) He died for you — Believe in Him!
“But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name:” Though undeserving, ExPreacherMan and Sweet Wife rejoice that we have received God’s greatest Gift ever given, Eternal life in Jesus Christ.
This Gift is for you too. Today is the day you can receive His immeasurable Gift, eternal life in Jesus Christ. If you are not sure of Heaven, Eternal Life, trust Jesus alone as your personal Savior.
2 Corinthians 6:2b
“….behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.” We pray you will have a wonderful season remembering the birth of the only Savior, the only Mediator between Man and God, Jesus Christ the Messiah.
