The Incarnation Changed Everything

Matthew 1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

The incarnation changed everything. Until God was revealed in Jesus we went to a place, a building, to meet with Him. We were bound to the mystical revelation of truth in symbols, temple design and furniture, and Words spoken by prophets. The only incarnation was in the content of meaning carried in those Words and symbols.

But now, born to us all, the very incarnation of the Son Of God. God filling the vessel of a human body with Himself. A body has eternally become the temple of God. Every cell controlled by deity. His every facial expression is the the expression of God. In Jesus we find the Transcendent. Emmanuel!

There are still many today who seek God in a building. They search for Him in symbols and abstractions. They claim to find him in lists of rules and laws... but He is found in a man—Jesus Christ. Look for Him there. Worship Him there. Find reconciliation and forgiveness there. It is all in Him.
