Good morning people whose God put aside His Divinity and stepped into our humanity
Jesus is ‘God incarnate’:
The word ‘incarnate’ means ‘embodied in human form’ (Oxford Dictionary of English).
Jesus was God embodied in human form.
The word ‘embodied’ means ‘to be an expression of or give a visible or tangible form to, provide a spirit with a physical form’ .
God is Spirit (John 4:24).
Therefore, Jesus (more accurately ‘The Eternal Word’ and ‘The Eternal Son of God’) is Spirit Who expressed Himself in human form.
The Holy Spirit is not a dove, but rather, He took on the form of a dove to express Himself to those at the Jordan River (Matthew 3:16).
Jesus is not a man, but rather, He took on the form of a man to express Himself to those who needed salvation.
And all of this is embodied in the name and Person of Jesus!
The truth of Who Jesus is and what He has accomplished is perfectly summed up in this precious scripture:
Philippians 2:5-11 NKJV Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, Who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
