Jesus Christ~God With Us
As we celebrate this Christmas season, it is very important for us to know the reason for this season– to celebrate the first coming of Jesus Christ. Who is this Jesus that we so honor and who we so praise? There is a tendency for many to forget who Jesus really is, so thus this paper. Jesus Christ is ‘God With Us’ Mt1:23.
Since the creation of the first man Adam, and throughout the 6000 years annals of mankind, there has never been a greater and more nobler person than Jesus Christ that ever lived, in example of humility, service, love, and compassion, and in dignity, wisdom, majesty, authority and power! Jesus is our Saviour, the Miracle Worker, the Great Physician, the Prince of Peace, the King Of Kings, and the Lord Of Lords, our Great God and soon coming King. Truly, of the billions of people that ever graced this earth, Jesus Christ is the greatest person that ever lived. So great that the apostle John once hyperbolized ‘..there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written’ Jn21:25.
The apostle Paul succinctly described Jesus: ‘Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father’ Php2:6-11.
