JOHN 1:1 , 14

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

MATTHEW 1 :22-23

All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet:

“The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”).

ISAIAH 9:6

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

THE MESSAGE

THE THREEFOLD PURPOSE OF THE INCARNATION : COMPREHENSION - DEMONSTRATION - SALVATION

1. COMPREHENSION

The Lord Jesus , the Son of God , took the form of a human being in order for man to have a comprehension and an understanding of the nature of God and for God to experience every trial and tribulation faced by man. By looking at Jesus , man could understand the nature of God and remove all misunderstandings and false notions of God from his mind. God was not far away and beyond human reach and understanding. Through the incarnation , God dwelt among men and enabled man to comprehend God.

Through the incarnation , the Lord Jesus experienced the trials and tribulations and temptations faced by mankind. God was not far away without any comprehension of what mankind faced in this evil world. Jesus was tested in every way and yet lived without sin. Whatever sufferings we may face in our life . the Lord Jesus has faced it in an even greater way. Therefore He is a high priest who can sympathise and emphathise with our struggles and have compassion on us and shower us with His grace and mercy to meet every need in our lives.

JOHN 14:7-11

If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”

Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.”

Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?
