TOPIC: CHRIST’S INCARNATION
TEXT: JOHN 1:10-18
MEMORY VERSE: “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth” (JOHN 1:14).
The virgin birth of Christ is one of the mysteries that would continue to pose a puzzle to those who want to understand the things of God through their natural knowledge. Those who know their God do not have any difficulty in understanding that the Son of God was made flesh. That means that Jesus took on the very nature of man in order to interact with man. The Old Testament prophets foretold His incarnation as they portrayed Him as the coming Messiah who would take away the sin of the world. Christ in His earthly ministry maintained both divinity and humanity. He was God because He forgave sin and was worshipped. He was human because He felt hungry, slept and lived among mortals - What a mystery! Our Christian faith is rooted in Christ's incarnation, priesthood and mission to redeem us. His incarnation therefore should make all Christian youths to appreciate the sacrifice of Christ to save humanity from sin because without His incarnation, He would not have been able to save humanity through a literal crucifixion on the cross.
QUOTE: Jesus took on the very nature of man.
CHALLENGE: His incarnation made His crucifixion possible.
PRAYER: Lord, help me to appreciate Your incarnation.
