Luke 1:35; “The angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; and for that reason the holy Child shall be called the Son of God”.
When I think about Christmas time and the Incarnation of Jesus Christ I am always filled with wonder at just who Jesus Christ actually is; He is the Son of God. In the practice of apologetics we defend our faith from all types of attacks upon the scriptures and most specifically upon our Lord, Christ Jesus. To know what we believe and why we believe it is important in an age when so many other religions infiltrate our cultures. The dividing line between Christianity and cults can be found in the answer to one simple question, “Who do you say that Jesus Christ is?”. If the answer is anything other than Jesus Christ is God and the only Son of God, you can quickly surmise that you are dealing with a cult. This is why it is so important to know the scriptures which point to Jesus Christ’s deity and human nature. The GodMan, ‘In whom dwells the fullness of the Godhead bodily’. And because of what the Son of God did at the Cross and in that Judean Tomb, we who are found in Him are now are called the sons of God. Mind Blown!!!
To know that it wasn’t just any baby born in Bethlehem that night, but the Son of God, fills my soul with delight. Every Christmas time I marvel at the love that God has for us, that He would send His only begotten Son to die for me. Let us not forget just what an awe inspiring event this was. The whole of history came to a crossroads the day the Son of God took on the form of human flesh and dwelt with us.
“Our Good Shepherd,
With His Staff and Rod,
Incarnated for us,
The Son of God”
