The LIGONIER STATEMENT on CHRISTOLOGY

The LIGONIER STATEMENT on CHRISTOLOGY

 
The Word Made Flesh 

We confess the mystery and wonder of God made flesh and rejoice in our great salvation through Jesus Christ our Lord.

With the Father and the Holy Spirit, the Son created all things, sustains all things, and makes all things new. Truly God, He became truly man, two natures in one person.

He was born of the Virgin Mary and lived among us. Crucified, dead, and buried, He rose on the third day, ascended to heaven, and will come again in glory and judgment.

For us, He kept the Law, atoned for sin, and satisfied God’s wrath. He took our filthy rags and gave us His righteous robe.

He is our Prophet, Priest, and King, building His church, interceding for us, and reigning over all things.

Jesus Christ is Lord; we praise His holy Name forever.

Amen.

1 Peter 3:14-16

14 But even if you should suffer for righteousness’ sake, you will be blessed. Have no fear of them, nor be troubled,

15 but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect,

16 having a good conscience, so that, when you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame.

The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2001). (1 Peter 3:14–16)

1 Corinthians 2:1-5
Proclaiming Christ Crucified

2:1 And I, when I came to you, brothers, did not come proclaiming to you the testimony of God with lofty speech or wisdom.

2 For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.

3 And I was with you in weakness and in fear and much trembling,

4 and my speech and my message were not in plausible words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power,

5 so that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.

The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2001). (1 Corinthians 2:1–5)

John 15:13

13 Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.

The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2001). (John 15:13)

My carnal life is obviously the cause of my shameful prayerlessness

The hidden aversion of the heart to a holy God

Do not seek to find in circumstances the explanation for this prayerlessness over which we mourn. Seek it where God’s Word declares it to be—in the hidden aversion of the heart to a holy God.

Murray, A. (2002). Living a prayerful life. Grand Rapids, MI: Bethany House.

Our unbelief and our sins are the cause of our lack of spiritual power

‘‘If we but study the conditions in all sincerity, we will have to acknowledge that our unbelief and our sins are the cause of our lack of spiritual power, and that this condition is one that places us guilty before God and grieving God’s Holy Spirit.’’

Murray, A. (2002). Living a prayerful life. Grand Rapids, MI: Bethany House.

Jesus – we see in the quality of His humanity God’s ideal of man, the Creator’s intention for His creature

He is the revelation of man only in the sense that when we turn our eyes toward Him, we see in the quality of His humanity God’s ideal of man, the Creator’s intention for His creature; while by contrast with Him we may learn the degradation of our sin; and happily also we may see in Him what man is to be, through the redemption of the Son of God and the sanctification of the Spirit.
