Given by the Father

Unto us a Son is given;

Isaiah 9:6 NKJV

When He came to earth it was the most miraculous thing that had happened since creation.

When Jesus entered the world as a baby He was God come in the flesh. He was Mary’s baby, but He was God’s Son.

The Creator entered creation as a man.

Why did He do it? He came because His Father sent Him—not to impress us with His miracle power so He could entertain us, not to educate us so we could learn more facts about heaven, and not to provide us with new rituals so we could become more religious.

He came because we had sinned and needed to be forgiven, because God wanted us brought back into a loving, holy, caring relationship with Himself, and because the only way that we could ever be reconciled to God was by His Son coming and offering up His body as a sacrifice for our redemption.

What incredible love is in the heart of God for you. Jesus came as a visible expression of that love…nothing is deeper than that love.

He came so that you could have sweet communion with Him…nothing is sweeter than that communion.

He came to be your companion always…nothing is nearer than that companionship.

He came so that His presence could be within you…nothing is dearer than that presence.



I think God came to earth in the body of a human to communicate his wishes. To communicate with those who only believe when they hear what is coming out of another human beings mouth. He also walked through every trial, people walk through, and he showed by example how to deal with the experience. I have always been in awe more so of one thing than all the other things, before he died he said forgive them; for they know not what they do. I have found in order for me to get closer to God I need to forgive others and myself. Before my mother passed on, she admitted to me something she had been doing to me (which was wrong); and told me it was done to her. I believe it was her way of saying she was sorry. Forgiveness is very important to a healthy existence.

You are right Judy... God says we have to forgive others if we want our heavenly Father to forgive us... it eats away at us if we don't and can cause physical illness too... but most importantly unforgiveness becomes like a barrier between us and God hurting our relationship with Him... God Bless You and thank You for Your thoughts!
