πŸ‘‘ Knowing Christ As He Should Be Known

John the Baptist introduced our Lord with the proclamation: β€œRepent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand” (Matt. 3:2). Throughout His earthly ministry Christ was known as β€œthe Son of David”, the king with whom God made a covenant to establish His Kingdom forever.

The Old Testament prophets predicted that Christ would β€” and He will β€” reign on earth upon the throne of His father David. While His Kingdom was being proclaimedΒ β€œat hand”, He walked and talked and ate with men asΒ β€œthe Son of Man”. Wearied with travelling, He sat at Jacob’s well and asked for a drink of water. Pressed by the throng, He got into a fishing boat and addressed the multitudes from the sea. Hated by His adversaries, He was tried, scourged, spit upon, and nailed to a tree. This was indeedΒ β€œChrist manifest in the flesh”.

With regard to His humiliation, however, the Apostle Paul says, by divine inspiration:Β β€œGod also hath highly exalted Him and given Him a name which is above every name” (Phil. 2:9).

Again, the Apostle declares that God’s mighty power was β€œwrought in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead, and set Him at His own right handΒ in the heavenly places, FAR ABOVE ALL…” (Eph. 1:20). He is no longer to be known as β€œthe lowly Jesus”, but as the exaltedΒ β€œLord” in heaven. And this has its bearing on us too:

β€œWherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: Yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now, henceforth, know we Him no more” (II Cor. 5:16). Our blessed Saviour is now to be known as the glorified Son of God,Β the Great Dispenser of GraceΒ to a lost humanity; the One who in love and mercy β€œtasted death for every man” (Heb. 2:9). source

Bible Verse for 2/18/19

For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. — Romans 8:38-39
