The goodness and lovingkindness of God appeared to man
in the form of a gift wrapped in flesh: very God and very Man.
The King of all descended from His lofty throne in the heavenlies
to be united with a Human Nature in order to provide the remedy.
The tendency to be inclined to sin was not in Him,
He increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man…in One Person.
‘The distinction of the two Natures being by no means taken away by the union,
but rather the property of each Nature being preserved and concurring in one Person,
and one Subsistence,
not parted or divided into two Persons,
but One and the same, only Begotten,
God the Word, the Lord Jesus Christ.’*
Thanks be to God for His unspeakable gift!
*From the Chalcedonian Creed/Definition (451AD)
