Read the context around these key verses when possible!
God loved His creation so much that He became flesh and dwelt among us. He entered into our weakened form and became a man. Though He was not weak, He endured the weakness of the flesh. In human form, He became our Savior – toward whom all God’s promises and prophets pointed.
He is not a distant Savior, but one who understands the weakness of the flesh. He can relate to us in our suffering and in our sorrows. However, He did not come simply to relate to us, but rather to redeem us.
His flesh and blood paid the price for sin by dying on the cross, and then He rose victorious.
We cannot strive in our own flesh to save ourselves.
Only He can save us.
We cannot work in our own flesh to give God glory.
Only He can remake us.
Neither can we live in our own flesh any way we want.
Only He can be Lord.
If His flesh and blood speak a better word than yours, trust Him all your days!!! He is good and merciful and steadfast and sovereign!
If He is your Savior and Lord this Christmas, rejoice!!! He is yours forever!!!
Lighting the Candles
We enjoy lighting the Christ Candle on Christmas day because He is the Light of Life! The Light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it!
