And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory"
(1 Timothy 3:16)
(1 Timothy 3:16)
Today's Morsel: When the angel told Mary that she would conceive and bear a child, "Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God" (Luke 1:34-35). Mary was a pretty sharp girl. She knew that a woman couldn't have a child without a man. Even if it is artificial insemination, she knew that the seed has to come from a man. Because this impregnation would not be a normal impregnation with man and women, but by the power God (Holy Ghost) overshadowing the woman, the child would be called the Son of God. Thus, inside of Mary's womb, would be God Himself. Even though Joseph would serve the purpose as the earthly father, the real father would be God Himself. And many, like Mary, have questioned how can this be? But as Jesus said, "With man this is impossible, but with God, nothing shall be impossible." So don't try to figure this out with your natural mind, as you never will. God's ways aren't our ways. John wrote, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. ...And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth." (John 1:1;14). He wanted us to know that God came to earth as a human. Jesus said, "And no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal him" (Luke 10:22). John said, "Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also" (1 John 2:23). "Do you know the Son? Then you should have know the father also," Jesus said. And Paul said it best when he wrote, "And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory."

It's all in Him, it's all in Him, the fullness of the Godhead, it's all in Him; it's all in Him, it's all in Him, the Mighty God is Jesus and it's all in Him.
