How You are Known – (1)
I have been fascinated by this book for a long time now. Beautifully entitled ‘The Wonderful Names of our Wonderful God’, it is a book which captures all the names of the Lord Jesus as stated in the Bible (!) So I have decided to start utilizing this book as an additional devotional aide to my daily communion with Him, and by recording His names here one by one, I hope it serves as a form of sharing and an act of worship. So here is His first name in the Bible…
The Seed of the Woman
“And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed.” (Genesis 3:15)
“Because He stooped so low God hath exalted Him very high” (Philippians 2:9). From this first great act and fact in His revelation to that last greater act when He died for our sins on Calvary, and up until the very time when God exalted Him very high to sit at His right hand in the heavenlies, our Saviour’s example was one of profound humility. He came from the bosom of the Father to become the “Seed of the Woman”. He turned from “the word which I have spoken to you, the same shall judge you” to be in His innocence judged of sinful man and crucified.
Oh, Thou who didst humble Thyself to be born of a woman, who didst bear our sins in Thine own body on the tree, we bow our faces before Thee and worship and adore. Amen.
