The Hymn of God’s Word “Christ Is the Incarnate God Himself”

  • The Hymn of God's Word "Christ Is the Incarnate God Himself"

    I

    The incarnation of God means God appears in flesh and He works among man, who is His creation, wears the same human flesh. It's true that God lives and does His work with His very essence made flesh. God incarnate is Christ, who is the body donned by God's Spirit. Christ is unique among men. He is not flesh and blood alone, but the Spirit of God made manifest.

    II

    Christ is both human and divine. Christ's humanity sustains the deeds of the flesh. His divinity carries out the work of God. Christ's humanity and divinity yield to the heavenly Father. The substance of Christ is Spirit, is God. God incarnate is Christ, who is the body donned by God's Spirit. Christ is unique among men. He is not flesh and blood alone, but the Spirit of God made manifest.

    III

    The words of God incarnate express His Spirit and show the work done by the Spirit. The flesh may be unaware of such works, but as the embodiment of God's Spirit, the flesh expresses the works of God and reveals God's being and His disposition. Christ is a man with the essence of God. He stands above all people, above even those who do God's work. Indeed, man is made of flesh, but only Christ is the incarnation of God Himself. All the rest are mere mortal men.
