Who Is This Child?
An anonymous author wrote
“What child is this, who laid to rest, on Mary’s lap is sleeping?”
Hebrews 1:1-4 “Long ago God spoke to the fathers by the prophets at different times and in different ways. In these last days, He has spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed
heir of all things and through whom He made the universe. He is the radiance of His glory, the exact expression of His nature, and He sustains all things by His powerful word.
After making purification for sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high. So He became higher in rank than the angels, just as the name He inherited is superior to theirs.”
The Son of God
Heir of all things of God
Creator of the universe
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. All things were created through Him,
and apart from Him not one thing was created that has been created. (John 1:1, 3)
Radiance of the glory of God
The Word became flesh and took up residence among us. We observed His glory, the
glory as the One and Only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.” (John 1:14)
Exact representation of the Father
“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6).
Administrator of the universe today
Purifier of our sin
Exalted Lord sitting in Heaven
He is seated in a place of honor.
He is seated in a place of authority.
He is seated because all His work on earth is done.
He is seated and intercedes for us.
That’s who this baby is in Mary’s lap that we sing about at Christmas!
