The Incarnation

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: During this Christmas season, you’ll likely hear the word incarnation. It comes from two Latin words that mean “in the flesh.” The New Testament tells us that “the Word became flesh” (John 1:14). God took on human form. Emmanuel. God with us. The incarnation.

Take a minute to think about the Christmas story in the light of Philippians chapter 2, which tells us that though Jesus “was in the form of God, [He] did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped.”

In other words, He didn’t cling to His rights as God. That verse goes on to explain how He “made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant.” And how did He take the form of a servant? According to Philippians 2, it was by “being born in the likeness of men” (v. 6).

The incarnation—a doctrine that’s vital to the Christian faith. So would you take a moment to thank the God who became flesh for us?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
