Some state that Christ was the only perfect person — the supreme example of how we are to live. There are others who profess that Christ was filled with the Holy Spirit, thereby revealing the grace of God more than any other person. Then there are also many who say that Christ was was special person, chosen by God and thus blessed in a life of teaching God’s ways. These are all wrong.
Christ was God — God was Christ. This is the truth. When Mary gave birth it was God who was born into the world. When Jesus spoke, it was God who was speaking. When Christ healed the sick, the lame, and the blind, it was God who restored them to health. And when Christ was crucified, it was God who died.
“God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself.” —II Corinthians 5:19
