There is so much about Jesus’ birth, the incarnation of God in human flesh, that should grip our attention, transform our lives, and evoke our worship. A few blogs at this time of year are a pitiful attempt to exhaust such an infinite subject. My goal is to stir up in you some response to what Scripture says about Him that will change your heart, life and love for Jesus.
The angel told Joseph to call this baby conceived in Mary by the Holy Spirit, “Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.” In addition to calling Him Jesus, “they shall call His name Immanuel (which means, God with us” (Matthew 1:21-23). What does “God with us” mean?
Though we can never grasp the fulness of this, Hebrews tells us that Jesus “is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of His nature” (1:3). I want us to look at these two expressions and learn something deeper about the presence and glory of God in His Son.
As we meditate on these two expressions of God in Jesus Christ, there should be an immediate response from us in both worship and transformation. Have you taken time to look at HIM?
