At Christmas time, I can’t help but think of the God Who came and walked in the shoes of another. Of course, God didn’t have to investigate our lives out of a lack of knowledge on His part. But rather, the incarnation of Christ was so that a Man could fulfill the requirements of God’s law by His perfect obedience and take upon Himself the punishment for our evil acts (Hebrews 2:17-18, Isaiah 53:4-5). Thusly, as a man He could usher in life and peace by way of His perfect obedience just as the earlier man (Adam) had ushered in death and enmity with God by way of his sin (Romans 5:18-19).
I had the pleasure of writing a Christmas post for the Reformed African American Network. You can find the article, entitled the Glorious Condescension of the Incarnation, here. Hope you are able to read.
May the Lord bless you as you gaze on the glorious mystery of the incarnation this advent season. Be astounded by the humility of our LORD and adore Him!
