God Became Man

Mark 6:3

Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him



To answer their question, yes it is, and it's important that He was not only God but the God man. God lived in a human body for 33 years before He gave His life as a ransom for sin. Why is it important? Because our Savior knows what it's like to be hungry and tired, to have a broken heart, to weep at a graveside, and to be happy. We will never go through anything that Jesus hasn't already gone through.


During the darkest hours of Job's trials he desired that God would become a man so he could understand how he felt. That's exactly what happened when Mary gave birth to the virgin born son of God; God became a man.


Paul said that the LORD could be touched with the feelings of our infirmities because He had been tested just like us, and without sinning. He is a perfect Savior, completely holy, but He has compassion. A god of wood or stone is just that, but a God with flesh and blood, and with a heart can feel.


We can touch Him because He has touched us.
