Eternal Things Unseen

“. . . but Christ is all, and in all.” (Colossians 3:11 & I Corinth. 15:28)

A couple thoughts at the end of the year.

One is that the Lord is drawing us to Himself.

This is at the core of all things that the Lord does. All things.

Last summer, I had a discussion with someone close to me who has been struggling with cancer. We talked about healing. And what the Bible says about it.

I tried to listen carefully before I opened my big mouth. Something I don’t always do. And, as a result, I learned something.

The Eternal Spirit of Christmas: Part 2

“If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.” (Colossians 3:1-4)

While reflecting on the Incarnation of Jesus Christ, we must not miss the incredible gift that God has given us. A gift that enables us to live in heavenly places in Christ. 

As Christians, we must deal with many miserable temptations and struggles against sin. It is a spiritual, emotional, mental and physical struggle. Quite simply, it is a raging, bloody battle.

And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.” (Luke 1:34-35)

At the very beginning of the Christmas story the critical presence of the Holy Spirit is established. By Him, was the child conceived within the virgin Mary. He was not born of the seed of a man, but of the Spirit of God.

Even at the beginning of Genesis, when God promised that Christ would come, He spoke of “the seed” of the woman (Genesis 3:15). It was not the seed of a man that would be the source of the Son of God made flesh; it would be the Holy Spirit using the woman’s body to bring forth the Holy One of God.

In this way, Christ would not have the sinful nature of Adam handed down through the seed of Adam. Which all other men, born of the union between a man and a woman, possess. This would be a unique man — the Son of Man. The same One who, along with the Spirit of God, created all things that are made.
