On ‘the Faith of the Son of God’

Have you ever heard the phase and wondered what it might mean: “… the faith of the son of God…” [Galatian 2:20 KJV].

Imagine a child to whom has been told stories about the interesting circumstances surrounding his birth. He believes his parents all the more when he hears the words of the ‘Law and Prophets’; when he sees them for himself. Then one day he assumes the place of the one spoken of; and starts seeing and carrying himself as one to lie in wait for and crush the head of the serpent; the seed of Abraham [Genesis 3:15 ASV]; the Messiah, the anointed one [Daniel 9:25 ASV, JND]….
He becomes Jesus, the Christ, as he believes what is written of Him; living according to His faith that “in the volume of the book, it is written of me…” [Psalm 40:7 KJV]. His faith was vindicated for it was anchored on truth. So that it was that, for Him to experience His sonship of God, as designed, He needed to express faith on the words of God about His life — the model for Christianity.

The world will always feel the effect of this faith of the son of God, regardless of the faith of the world.

Forever The Reason

While, as the Eternal, You have neither end of life nor beginning of days;
That you came into the world of man, we can commemorate your birthday.
Happy birthday Jesus the Messiah, we’re glad that You came.
Let us Celebrate!

For the most imperfect person ever
Was born the pure and true forever.
Thank you Christ for coming into this order;
God, You came to live with the children of Adam.

Here to treat humanity
For what killed our immunity
So that we stand blameless and free
Knowing Eternity.

 

Thank you for reading. And a very Merry Christmas to you.

Thank You—April 2015

Thank you that I am rich
Thank you that I am strong
Thank you that I lived long

Fit and virile, hale and hearty
  In wealth and health
With a continuum of joys and victories

The answer had been provided before I was born
For the question I’d ask with my life
I’ve got it
    I live it
I am grateful

Thank you that you’re perfect
If you weren’t, this would be delusion
C’est finit on the cross
Happy Easter
