No End in Itself

As we look forward to celebrating the incarnation of our Messiah, let us remember that we are not to obsess over a baby in a manger.


The birth of Jesus is no end in itself, but is part of the fulfillment of God’s plan of redemption. Jesus exercised the offices of prophet, priest, and king in his role as mediator, and especially took on human flesh that he might suffer in that flesh, offering himself as a substitutionary sacrifice, to atone for the sins of his people.

The Incarnation in the Gospels (P&R Publishing, 2008), xi.
