๐ŸŽ„๐Ÿ‘‘ The Word Was Made Flesh

โ€œIn the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us…โ€ (John 1:1,14).

On this Christmas Day, we reflect on the incarnation of Jesus Christ.

The candidate who could solve manโ€™s sin problem had to meet two requirements. He had to be God, and He had to be manโ€”a โ€œGod-Man.โ€ It had to be God, because Godโ€™s righteousness had to be satisfied, but it also had to be man, for it was man who had sinned. Godโ€™s righteousness was offended, since โ€œall have sinned, and come short of the glory of Godโ€ (Romans 3:23). But, it was also a man who had sinned, โ€œAs by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinnedโ€ (Romans 5:12).

Consider Philippians 2:5-8: โ€œChrist Jesus: who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: but made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: and being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.โ€ In short, heavenโ€™s bestโ€”Jesus Christโ€”came to save earthโ€™s worstโ€”us! In summary, Jesus Christ was born to die for us.

Brethren, the salvation that we enjoy today in Christ could not be possible without the shed blood of Christ on Calvaryโ€™s cross, and the shed blood of Christ could not be possible without the incarnation of Christ! God is a Spirit (John 4:24), and in order for Him to shed sinless blood, He had to first have blood. Thus, it behooved Jesus Christ to take upon Himself the form of a man. It was at this time of year that God the Son entered the virgin Maryโ€™s womb, possessing a body that was conceived by the Holy Ghost.

Remember, โ€œThe Word was made fleshโ€ (todayโ€™s Scripture) so we could have an opportunity to be โ€œmade the righteousness of God in Christโ€ (2 Corinthians 5:21). Merry Christmas! source
