2 October 2023 | Dear Aunt Sevvy, My college religion classes convinced me that it’s best to form beliefs on a multiplicity of texts—not a single text, not “here a little and there a little.” We find fault when the Latter Day Saints argue for baptism for the dead based on a single Bible verse.

Daily Lesson for Tuesday 3rd of October 2023
The Old Testament presents how the Creator began to implement a plan through a people who were supposed to represent His nature and purpose to the world. Everything God did was according to His missionary strategy. Through the prophet Isaiah, God said: “ ‘I am God, and there is no one like Me, declaring the end from the beginning, . . . saying, “My purpose will be established, and I will accomplish all My good pleasure” ’ ” (Isaiah 46:9-10, NASB).
In the New Testament, however, God’s desire to be with humanity takes a new dimension. Through Christ’s incarnation, what was only a promise in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3:15) becomes a reality.
Read the narrative of the announcement of Jesus’ birth in Matthew 1:18-23. What essential things does this account tell us about God?
“God with us.” Immanuel. God had dwelt among His people within the sanctuary, and now He dwelt with them in the physical person of Jesus of Nazareth. Indeed, with the birth of Jesus, God presented in concrete ways His continuous desire to be with us in nature and mission: the Son of God was fully human and fully divine, and He is the One who affirmed, “ ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me’ ” (John 14:6, NKJV).
Read John 1:14-18. What can you learn from Christ’s incarnation about God’s mission to us?
God moved forward with His mission and then, through Jesus Christ, was present in the flesh among His children. The “one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth” (John 1:14, NIV), fulfilled the Old Testament prophecies and, in accordance with the divine plan, became one with us, God in human flesh. The God of mission was continuing to accomplish His purpose.
Think what it means that God’s love for us is so great that He would come to us in our own humanity. How should we respond to this love, especially in terms of mission to others?
