πŸ‘‘ The Baby Jesus And The Lord Of Glory

Each year at Christmas-time, the β€œbaby Jesus” is the subject of discussion and attention. Indeed, all year long the Babe in its mother’s arms and the dying Sufferer on the cross are kept constantly before the masses, while our Lord’s resurrection, ascension and present glory in heaven are given but scant attention. This is because so few have taken note of the great message of the Apostle Paul about the glorified Lord in heaven. In II Cor. 5:16, the Apostle wrote:

β€œβ€¦yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we Him no more.”

It is sad that so many still know only β€œChrist after the flesh.” They love to discuss the β€œgospel stories” about the β€œMan of Galilee,” but find themselves strangers in the great Epistles of St. Paul.

Paul was the apostle for this present β€œdispensation of the grace of God” (Eph. 3:2). It is he who presents Christ in His present glory as the great Dispenser of redeeming grace, through the merits He won at Calvary. In Eph. 1:15-23 we have recorded for us the Apostle’s prayer that we might be given β€œthe spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Christ” (Eph. 1:17) that we might come to experience…

β€œWhat is the exceeding greatness of [God’s] power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of His mighty power,

β€œWhich He wrought in Christ when He raised Him from the dead, and set Him at His own right hand in the heavenly places.

β€œFar above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world [age], but also in that which is to come” (Eph. 1:19-21).

Let us thank God that the baby Jesus died for our sins and became the risen, living Savior at God’s right hand, abundantly β€œable also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by Him” (Heb.Β 7:25). source

Bible Verse for 5/31/19

For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. — 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
