Carol's Journey
Email Poem | Today's Poetry

 Origin of Jesus
Jesus Christ was sent to earth
Both a divine and humble birth
By the Holy Spirit conceived
Angel's words Mary believed

Since the Spirit planted the seed
He was fully God and man indeed
If Mary and Joseph had relations
He would be man by expectations

Son of God, firstborn over all creation
Not created, refers only to His position
Superior to everything that He had made
Higher than angels, as the Bible explains

God's relationship to Jesus is eternal
Different from humans that are external
Jesus is our example as God and man
Humbly obedient to His Father's plan

Jesus came down to earth in human form
To free mankind from the Law to conform
His death and resurrection, the final sacrifice
Once for all sins forgiven, He paid the price

John 1:1, 14 (NIV)
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God. 14 The Word became flesh and made his
dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the
One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

Colossians 1:15-16 (NIV)
He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.
16 For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth,
visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities;
all things were created by him and for him.

Hebrews 1:3-4 (NIV)
The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of
his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had
provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the
Majesty in heaven. 4 So he became as much superior to the angels as
the name he has inherited is superior to theirs.
