Man Being Brought into God
John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only
Rom 8:29 ...that He
might be the Firstborn among many brothers; Heb 2:10 For it was fitting for Him...in leading many sons into glory, to make the Author of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

[Part 2 of 2]
Before His resurrection, Christ was the only begotten Son of God (John 3:16). But through resurrection the only begotten Son became the firstborn among many brothers (Rom. 8:29). According to Hebrews 2:10, God is leading many sons into glory. These many sons are the many brothers of Christ as the firstborn Son. Through the two births of Christ, divinity has been brought into humanity, and humanity has been brought into divinity. By the incarnation of Christ God was brought into man. Prior to Christ's incarnation, God was outside of man. However, through Christ's incarnation God was brought into humanity. We may say that with the birth of Christ God was born into man. Therefore, by Christ's first birth in incarnation God was brought into man and became one with man. Then through Christ's resurrection man was brought into God. When the Lord Jesus was on earth, God was living in a man, for God was in Him. Now, through Christ's resurrection, man has been brought into God. Hallelujah, as a man Christ is in the heavens! God has been brought into man, and man has been brought into God. What a transaction! What marvelous two-way traffic! In this two-way traffic God came into man through incarnation, and man was brought into God through resurrection.
