Beyond all question, the mystery of godliness is great: He appeared in a body, was vindicated by the Spirit, was seen by angels, was preached among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory.

—1 Timothy 3:16

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

Why would Jesus do it? How did he do it? How was he “God with us” and still be God in “human flesh”? We cannot fully comprehend it, but he was! The Son of God was also Jesus of Nazareth, born and placed in a manger at his birth and crucified on a cross at his death. But God raised him from the dead and presented Jesus as his Son with power. Angels on earth saw Jesus after his resurrection and now accompany him in heaven, where he now reigns. He has been preached to people worldwide, many of whom believed in him. One day, Jesus will display his glory for all to see. If you want to understand godliness, then you begin with Jesus!

My Prayer…

Holy and marvelous God, your plan to redeem and save a sinner like me is incredible. Jesus displayed your longing to see all people come to you and be saved. The love that led you to such sacrifice is beyond my comprehension. Please empower me with your Spirit, the same Spirit who raised Jesus from the dead. I desperately desire for the mystery of your godliness to be seen in my life today, in my family, among my friends, before my co-workers, by those with whom I attend school, and especially in the presence of my enemies. In Jesus’ mighty name, I pray. Amen.
