Flesh (Wednesday)



For over 40 years, thousands of people gathered every Sunday to hear Charles Haddon Spurgeon preach. His message wasn’t just relevant to the late 1800s. His words still ring true:


“‘The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us.’ Note that word ‘flesh.’ It doth not say, ‘The Word was made man’: it means that, but the use of the word ‘flesh’ brings the Lord Jesus still closer to us, and shows that He took on Him the very nature and substance of manhood: He did not merely assume the name and notion, and appearance, of manhood, but the reality: the weakness, the suffering, the mortality of our manhood.”
from The True Tabernacle, and Its Glory of Grace and Peace, preached 9/27/1885
