Christ Left Heaven to Become the Messiah
 

It’s wonderful to celebrate the Baby Jesus at Christmas. The advent of Christ is an integral part of his role as Messiah. However, Christ has existed from eternity. His birth as Jesus was simply the beginning of his humanity.

 

     This is made clear by the Gospel of John chapter 1:1, "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."

 

     As the "Word", Jesus is the exact image of God. The Father has communicated himself through the person of his Son. John states that Jesus is God, and is the Creator. Hebrews 1:3 also makes this clear. "The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word."

 

     John the Baptist referred to Jesus as the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. This describes Jesus Christ's role as the atoning sacrifice for sin, which is the reason he came to Earth.

 

     There are two important requirements that Jesus needed to meet to be qualified to serve as the Lamb of God. First of all, that he be without sin. As the Son of God, Jesus is perfectly divine. His sacrificial death on the cross can atone for all the sin of humanity because he had no sin. Secondly, that he be human. As the son of Mary, he is completely human. This means that he experienced real physical death, as all humans must. He then conquered death by his resurrection, fulfilling his role as Savior.

 

     Jesus is both one hundred percent divine, and one hundred percent human, which makes him uniquely qualified to be the Messiah, the Lamb of God. Jesus was conceived of the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary. These timeless truths of the Christmas story are part of the bedrock of our Christian faith.

 

     Jesus was with the Father, and voluntarily left the glories of Heaven to come to Earth to become the Lamb of God. As we celebrate the birth of the Christ-child this Christmas, let's remember that we are commemorating the plan of God for salvation which began in eternity past.                                                        Pastor Daniel Rhodes
