Coffee Time with Jesus

  • Jesus: God Manifested in the Flesh
    God was manifested in the flesh,
    justified in the Spirit,
    seen by angels,
    preached among the Gentiles,
    believed on in the world,
    received up in glory.
    1 Timothy 3:16
    Jesus was God Manifested in the Flesh. If you want to see what God is like, look at Jesus. You can see His life story in the pages of Scripture. As you study His life, you can see how God would react to situations. If you want to see how God would have you live, Jesus is your example. Will you follow His steps? Jesus is God Manifested in the Flesh. He was born in a stable in Bethlehem because people rejected Him at His arrival; there was no room in the inn (Luke 2:7). How will you react to rejection? Because Jesus was born King of the Jews, Herod felt threatened and tried to kill Him (Matthew 2:16). How will you handle persecution? The unsaved mind doesn’t know what to make of Christ, because He was God Manifested in the Flesh.
    Jesus, You are my Lord and God. I worship You for giving up the glories of Heaven to come to Earth to live in human flesh. I receive You, even though others reject You. I crown You King of my life, even though some tried to kill You. Thank You for becoming flesh for me.
    The greatest event in history was when God became flesh. The shepherds recognized what happened and worshiped Jesus as He lay in a manger (Luke 2:15-16). The wise men worshiped Him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh (Matthew 2:11). Throughout history, believers have worshiped Him with the gift of their heart. What will you bring to Him today?
    Jesus, I acknowledge that You are God Manifested in the Flesh. Jesus, I worship You with the gift of my heart; I have nothing greater to give You than myself. Amen.
