concerning His Son, who was born of a descendant of David according to the flesh,Romans 1:3(NASB)
The gospel of God was conceived in the heart of God. It centres on the good news of God's grace towards mankind and its singular focus is the only begotten Son of God, Jesus Christ our Lord, Who died for our sins and rose again the third day so that whosoever would believe on His name would not perish but receive God's free gift of everlasting life, by grace through faith in Him.
But the most significant truth that is ridiculed by unbelievers, denied by cults, and blasphemed by doctrines of demons, is that the eternal Son of God (the incarnate Word, made flesh), Who Himself created heaven and earth and Who upholds all things by the omnipotent power of His Almighty hand became a Man.
Jesus became flesh and dwelt amongst us, living a perfect life so that He could offer Himself as the only sacrifice to God for the sin of the whole world, and by His death and Resurrection, redeem sinful mankind from eternal separation from a holy God.
The genealogies of Christ through His earthly mother Mary and His legal adoptive father Joseph, stand as a true and authoritative witness to His humanity. The God-Man who could say, "Before Abraham was I AM," was not only the root of Jesse, through whom King David was born, but could also be identified as the offspring of David.
It is only as God that He was good enough to pay the price of sin, and only as a Man could he qualify to die for His fellow-men. Should we not treasure these things in our heart and ponder them daily in our heart, by faith with thanksgiving?
Thank You, Father, for Jesus. Thank You that He came from His home in heaven and set aside His glory for a season, to live a perfect life and to die a substitutional death so that in Him, I might believe and have life eternal. All praise to His name, AMEN.
