The Manger and the Cross
Seven hundred years before the coming of Christ, Isaiah foretold: “Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name Immanuel” (7:14).
What does it mean that God became a man? What does it mean that in the very name Immanuel we have both God and Man in one person, the Lord Jesus Christ?
In our first message of the new Christmas series, we looked at our need to affirm both the full deity of Christ and His full humanity. We looked at how many errors had arisen over the centuries and how each one diminished either Christ's divinity or His humanity, or both.
But our salvation rests in the reality of our God and Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ. He alone made Himself of no reputation, born as a humble babe, yet went on to accomplish our redemption, as both God and Man.
