John 1:14

I’m thankful Jesus left His heavenly throne to become man

From the beginning it was God’s plan to establish a way for us to fellowship with Him forever.  And so He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, “The Word of Life” in the flesh. As God’s Son, Jesus is heir to everything. (Heb.1:2) Yet in a perfect display of humility and obedience, Jesus became a man, and for a little while becoming, “lower than the angels…because of the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone.” (Heb. 2:9) Christ willingly left His glorious throne in heaven and became human. He did this out His great love for both us and the Father. And to save us, He had to become one of us. The consequence of sin is death. But Christ in His beautiful love, became our substitute paying the sin debt we owe and giving His sinless life for our sin filled ones. And through His blood we now can have an intimate, unbreakable relationship with God.
