Advent 18 (2012)–He is the Son of God

Luke 1:35 And the angel answered her, ”The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called holy—the Son of God.” (ESV)

The Son of God.   

Earlier the angel had said “Son of the Most High” which was also a Messianic term.   But, here it is unmistakable: He is the Son of God!

Think about how significant this is.

Jesus was—at one point in time–a nanoseconds old embryo formed in the womb of a humble peasant girl from Nazareth.

Yet He was, is, and always will be God.

  • He is the Eternal One, the Alpha and the Omega.
  • The Creator of the universe, sustaining all things by his powerful word.
  • His hands formed Adam and Eve from dust of the ground.
  • He is the greatest representation of love to ever walk the earth.
  • At His command, the winds were silenced, the sea was stilled, and Lazarus would return from death to life.
  • His words would heal the blind man and restore a dead son alive to his mother.
  • He is the radiance of God’s glory
  • The perfect Image of God.
  • He saw and knew the Father in His glory from before recorded time.
  • He is the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords forevermore.
  • Angels fall at His feet in worship.

Scripture says,

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.  For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him.  He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.  And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy.  For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him,  and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross. (Colossians 1:15-20 NIV)

Jesus is the One and Only Son of God sent on a mission to save us.
Conceived by the Holy Spirit in the womb of Mary, He is the Son of God.
