In the life of a believer, seldomly do the believers go through the study on the life of Christ, if they do go through it, it is less than two times in their life. When going through the study of the life of Christ is the one thing believers can do when they are preparing to run the faith race. When studying the life of Christ, it is appropriate for us to start from the arrival of Jesus Christ. However, we must look at it more than just a physical arrival, we should grasp the bigger picture which is being revealed to mankind through the arrival of Jesus Christ. Let us keep the following things in mind when are looking at the arrival of Christ.
Tonight, we began our journey by looking at the other side of the arrival of Jesus Christ. We are just beginning our journey and we are already looking forward knowing more about Jesus and His earthly ministry. I invite you to join us on this journey and please feel free to ask questions and give feed back. Let us pray that we will know Christ and develop a close relationship with Him.
Accuracy of the account
Whenever we are studying anyone’s life, it appropriate that we look at the accurate records. The first few verses of the gospel of Luke gives us the grounds to lay the foundation of faith on the accuracy of the records about the life of Christ and the word of God is trustworthy. We believe that the Bible is the word of God and was brought to us through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. We can be certain that God has blessed us with the records of how the life of Jesus Christ started.
God became a Man
Relying on the accuracy of the word of God, we come in contact with the gospel of John and through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit; the apostle John writes that God became flesh. In other words, Christ’s arrival in the first century was not the beginning of Christ, for God has no beginning.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with god in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made.John 1:1-3 NIV Copyright 1973, 1978, 1984, 2011 Biblica, Inc.
Why God became a Man
God became a man to reconcile the mankind to Himself, though God has made the way for mankind to be reconciled with Him, one must place their faith and trust in Christ. Jesus Christ reveals to us that the flesh gives birth to flesh and the Spirit gives birth to the spirit; therefore, we must be born of God in order for us be part of the eternal life.
