Omnibus Homework

How do we know that we truly comprehend and understand the whole truth about the incarnation?

Firstly, every thing we believe must be internally present and externally proved. Jesus said that by their fruits you shall know them. If we believe that theft is unethical than we should not steal. I it pure hypocrisy to say we are compassionate Christians whilst we refuse to stop and see if the old lady on the side of the road needs help.
That said let us define what the "whole truth" about the incarnation is.
When God created the world He did it through speaking the word, and in the beginning the word was with God and the word was God and the word became flesh and descended to the earth it had created for to redeem the object of it's grace. Christ was fully man and fully God. This is called the "hypostatic union". It is the conjunction of the immortal God and the mortal body of a man.
If we are to"incarnate"our thoughts into practical application then we must ask forgiveness of Christ our mediator, have faith in his power to regenerate us and work out our salvation through faith in good works(which we are now able to do thanks to the incarnation)

Notes from church!

I wish I had time to expound but this will have to do for now.

Live in hope, live in holiness, live in fear. People tend to ignore our need to live in the fear of the Lord.
Fear God and conduct yourself accordingly because God is a just judge, visiting the sins of the father on the third and fourth generation, but blessing to a thousand generations.
Gods judgment begins with his people.(Psalm 50:16), those who do not conduct themselves rightly, those who forget God will be torn apart.

You have been ransomed at an infinite cost. Creation cost far less to create than to redeem. The renewal of the world was wrought by the self same Word that spoke it into existence. God had to give His son to buy back what was already his.

We so often set our sights on the perishable rather than the precious. We were ransomed in spite of ourselves, (not because of). We should fear to make the blood of Christ common place.
When we don't understand the price of our sin, we will not appreciate Christs blood.

-Thank you
