Godhead Part 2
Christ is the power of God in His own person.
Historic, apostolic, supernatural Christianity stands
Or falls with the person of Christ.
Fearlessly we take our stand just here, and declare
That human nature did not and could not produce
Christ. If human nature could produce Christ,
Why has it not in the two thousand years that followed
The Saviour of Galilee-why has it not produced
Another, His equal?
The answer is that the task is entirely too stupendous
For poor human nature to accomplish, for Christ
Was both God and man in one personality- the God-man.
Never did hyphen mean what it means here. The
God-man it both joins and divides; it marks
Distinction and yet unity. Christ was a really man as
Though He were not God, and as really God as though
He were not man-the God-man. Here stands out vast
The Doctrine of the Incarnation.
“God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself.”
—George W. Truett
