The Wonderful and Glorious Christ (1)

Bible Verses

Matt 22:41 ...Jesus questioned them, (42) Saying, What do you think concerning the Christ? Whose son is He? Isa 9:6 For a child is born to us, a son is given to us; and the government is upon His shoulder and His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.

Words of Ministry

[Part 1 of 2]
Christology is the study of the Person of Christ. From the second century onward, Christian teachers have been fighting with one another concerning Christology. Even those who have admitted that Christ is both the Son of God and the Son of David have argued whether His two natures were separate or mingled. Instead of arguing about Christ's Person, we should say, "Hallelujah, we have a Person who is glorious and mysterious! He is so wonderful that we cannot adequately understand Him." Consider Isaiah 9:6. It will take eternity for us to understand this verse. Christ is a child, yet He is the mighty God. He is the Son, yet He is called the everlasting Father. Do not think that we can understand Christ adequately today. No, He is too wonderful and too far beyond our comprehension. We do not even fully understand ourselves, much less Christ. Do you know where your spirit is, or where your soul is? Can you locate your heart? The more you analyze yourself, the more you will find yourself in a maze. When I was very young, I thought I knew myself thoroughly. But the longer I have lived, the more I realize how little I know. If we cannot understand ourselves, how can we adequately understand Christ, the embodiment of the Triune God? How wonderful Christ is! He is both God and man, both the Son of God and the Son of David.
