Key Doctrines of the Faith: Incarnation

by David Chadwick

Without physical keys, you are unable to get into a locked car or a locked house. Well, without these spiritual keys, I believe you are vulnerable to deception and may not be able to unlock truths that could set you eternally free. Study these doctrines. Learn them. Use them to gain perspectives you may not have had before.

Today’s key: incarnation – the doctrine of Jesus coming into the world.

God is holy and hates our sin. But he also loves us so much. He created us, formed us, fashioned us for love. Sin got in the way!

So, what does a loving Father do? Well, we see the account written so beautifully in God’s Word! Jesus, the Second Person of the Godhead, was found with God from the beginning and in him was life and light (John 1:1-4). The Father then asked the Son to go and rescue us from our sin and from hell. The Son said yes. Jesus became flesh and dwelt among humanity, full of grace and truth (John 1:14).

Jesus willingly laid down his equality with God and was born as a human. Leaving his position next to the Father and taking on human flesh, he ran after us. The ultimate sacrifice and display of servitude. He humbled himself in obedience to the Father in heaven to the point of death, even a humiliating death on a cross (Philippians 2:6-7).

Jesus. Perfect God. Perfect man. Born of Mary’s womb. Conceived and created in her by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Fully God. Fully human. He had to be both. Why, you might ask?

Fully God to pay the price for our sins for only God can pay that price.

Fully human to be able to take all of our sins as a man to succeed where Adam failed.

The most miraculous story ever written!
