Trust the Incarnate God

Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise took part of the same; that through death He might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil…For verily He took not on Him the nature of angels; but He took on Him the seed of Abraham. – Hebrews 2: 14, 17

Mark right well who this Jesus Christ is. He is in the constitution of His person both God and man, divine and human, equal with God and fellow with man. Do you not see in this fact the love of God, that He should be willing to take humanity into union with Himself? If God becomes man, He does not hate men, but has love towards them. Do you not see the suitability of Christ to deal with you, for He is like yourself a man, touched with the feeling of your infirmities; of a human mother born, He hung at a woman’s breast, he suffered hunger and thirst and weariness, and, dead and buried in the tomb, He was partaker in our doom as well as our sorrow? Jesus of Nazareth was most truly a man, He is bone of our bone and flesh of our flesh. O sinner, look into the face of the Man of sorrows and you must trust Him. Since He is also God, you therein see His power to carry on the work of salvation. He touches you with the hand of His humanity, but He touches the Almighty with the hand of His Deity. He is man, and feels your needs; He is God, and is able to supply them. Is anything too tender for His heart of love? Is anything too hard for His hand of power? When the Lord Himself, that made the heavens and digged the foundations of the earth, comes to be your Savior, there remains no difficulty in your being saved. Omnipotence cannot know a difficulty, and, O sinner, to an omnipotent Savior it is not hard to save even you. A look of faith will give you perfect pardon. A touch of the hem of the Redeemer’s garment will heal you at once. Come, then, and trust the incarnate God. Cast yourself into His arms at once.~ C.H. Spurgeon
