How God became a human being may be a mystery, but God’s love isn’t. Paul wrote, “Great is the mystery of godliness. God was manifested in the flesh, justified in the spirit, seen by angels, preached among the Gentiles, believed on in the world, and received up in glory.” Romans 5:8. This is so remarkable! God’s great love for us is at the root of this Godly mystery. So, rejoice and be glad!
