The Word, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, became flesh. Just as we are flesh and blood, so also Jesus Christ became flesh and blood, Heb. 2:14. Adam was called dust and to dust he will return, therefore man is trapped in this physical body and once that body dies, man is further trapped in eternity having no power or ability to do anything for himself. Man as an infant is a perfect picture of the helplessness of man. For years we need the assistance of someone else to grow, to change and clean ourselves, to eat and thrive. Without help an infant would simply die. So man is in a helpless state at death, without a body with which to perform normal everyday tasks. No body means no arms, no legs, no fingers, and so forth. This is a total state of helplessness of the soul. But Christ was born man in the flesh in order to partake of all the lowly circumstances we have to deal with in our flesh burdened bodies. Christ also suffered physical torture and death in an excruciating way, depending totally on the Father and the Spirit. In faith He demonstrates the faithfulness of God, even to the point of death and beyond.

In His glory he also demonstrates the truth and the life that is available to each of us. By studying His word, we are in effect pumping iron so to speak, developing muscles in our souls, strength from doctrine.

Christ lived among us for over 33 years, Psa. 68:18, living among the sinners, among corruptible mankind. He lived here for many years, and suffered the similar problems that we all suffer in life. He was true flesh and blood, so he was exposed to all the temptations and pressures that we are exposed to. But as God he is not able to sin, and as man he was able not to sin, further fulfilling his qualification for the Cross.

We witness His glory in our learning His doctrine, in our spiritual growth as we advance to maturity. We come to an understanding of the deeper things life and begin to appreciate all the things that God has done for us. Jesus Christ came to us in the flesh some 2000 years ago, and his disciples saw Him up close, face to face and beheld His glory in His character, in His teaching, in His actions, in His work. Though many things were not understood until after the Cross and resurrection, and even after the 40 days Christ spent with them following the Cross.

He is full of grace and truth. Grace is Gods policy toward mankind. A function of His righteousness, justice and love. All these wrap up into a neat little bundle called grace. And it is all communicated to us through His Word, which we call truth, or doctrine, or scripture, or what ever term you prefer to identify the content of scripture from Genesis to Revelation.

Jesus Christ was full of grace in that He did not utilize His divine power to accomplish the tasks of His first advent, but relied entirely on the Holy Spirit. He lived by doctrine demonstrating to us that doctrine really works. That when we rely on God completely, He will guide our steps in our daily lives. We do not give up our decision making ability. We continue doing the things that come natural to us, the things which God gave us as gifts from physical birth, and from spiritual birth. I am not referring to sinful things of course. If you like to cook you will be a better cook. If you like to dig ditches you will be a better CAT operator. If you like to build rockets you will be a better rocket scientist. Whatever it is you do naturally, whatever it is that drives you in life, you will be better at it. You apply yourself, you teach yourself, you learn, you will have a natural desire to better yourself in your chosen field, or hobby, or whatever. Things do not happen instantly. There are no genies in scripture. You will plug along each day, little by little, slowly building confidence, and one day probably after years of study, God will have you ready for your purpose in life, and you will discover it. The light will come on in your head.

We too need to be full of grace and truth. And we accomplish this by learning doctrine day after day, every day of our lives. By remaining in fellowship with God so as to keep that line of communication always open between us and God, to remain under is care and in His refuge and strength. This is the power that the world can never discover or acquire on its own. Jesus Christ reveals this in His Word, the scriptures we are studying, and He lived it during His first advent, showing us by example the real power of God.
