More Than A Man


Being in very nature God . . .


Philippians 2:6

Napoleon was right when he said, “I know men, and I tell you, Jesus Christ is more than a man." One of the Bible’s greatest truths is that 2,000 years ago God became a man, and that man was Jesus Christ. In other words, Jesus was not only fully human, He was also fully God. The Bible puts it this way: “The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being” (Hebrews 1:3).


Can we fully understand this profound truth with our limited minds? No, not completely. We think God must be confined to one place (like we are)—but this is not true. We also think God must be limited in His power (like we are)—but again, this is not true. God is infinite and all-powerful—and when He came down from Heaven and became a man, His greatness was not diminished. The Bible says that Jesus Christ, “being in very nature God … made himself nothing … being made in human likeness” (Philippians 2:6-7).


The real question, however, is this: Why did Jesus Christ leave Heaven’s glory and come down to live among us? Why was He even willing to be unjustly condemned to death? The reason is simple, and yet also profound: to demonstrate God’s love for us. If God did not love us, Christ never would have come into the world or died the death of a common criminal. But God does love us—and the proof is Jesus Christ.


Do not be lost in doubt any longer. Instead, if you have never done so before, by a simple act of faith invite Jesus Christ into your life today—and He will come. Your life will never be the same. Him?
