WHO IS JESUS?

by D. Berg

***

But why would God send His Son into the World?

God loves us and wanted us to know His Love.

But He knows that He--the great Creator of the Universe--is simply too great a concept for us to comprehend or even imagine! He says, "As high as the heavens are above the Earth, so high are My ways above your ways, and My thoughts above your thoughts!"--Isaiah 55:9.

He also tells us, "Even the Heaven of heavens cannot contain Me!"--1Kings 8:27. None of us can really grasp just how great God is, how marvellous and wonderful He is, far beyond the minds of men and the wildest stretch of our imaginations!

But because He loves us and wanted us to know His Love and Salvation, He sent His "only begotten Son"--Jesus--into the World to show us what He Himself is like.

Although He was literally the Ruler & King of the Universe, He chose not to be born in a fine palace with the elite & powerful members of the governments of Man in attendance. Instead, He was born in the humblest & most lowly of circumstances, on the dirty floor of a barn amidst the cattle & the asses, wrapped in rags & laid to rest in the animals' feed trough.


His earthly step-father, Joseph, was a humble carpenter with whom He lived & laboured, conforming to our own human ways of life, custom, language & living.

--Thus He personally experienced life as we know it, & learned to understand & love us better, to communicate with us on the lowly level of our own limited human understanding.

--He learned to love Mankind. He saw our suffering & had great compassion on us, longing not only to heal our sick & broken bodies, but also to save our souls and broken hearts!
When Jesus began His life's work, He went about everywhere doing good.--Helping people, loving children, healing heartaches, strengthening tired bodies, and bringing God's Love to all whom He could. He not only preached His message, but He lived it among us as one of us.

He not only ministered to Man's spiritual needs, but He spent a great deal of time ministering to their physical & material needs, miraculously healing them when they were sick, giving sight to the blind, hearing to the deaf, cleansing lepers, raising the dead. He fed the crowds when they were hungry, & did all He could to share His life & His Love!
