339 God Must Become Flesh to Do His Work

Intro

God saving corrupt man from Satan’s influence

cannot be directly done by God’s Spirit,

but by the flesh that is worn by God’s Spirit,

that is, the flesh God’s incarnated in.


Verse 1

This flesh is man with normal humanity,

and is also God with full divinity.

He differs from the Spirit, but the One who saves man

is still incarnate God, is Spirit and flesh.


Verse 2

In the three stages of the work of God,

one stage is done directly by the Spirit,

the other two are by the incarnate God,

and are not done directly by the Spirit.


Chorus

Only God in the flesh can be

man’s confidant, shepherd and present help,

and this is the necessity of incarnation

in past times and today.


Verse 3

The work of law that was done by the Spirit

didn’t involve having to do any changing

of the corrupt disposition of man,

or bear relation to man’s knowledge of God.


Verse 4

The work of God’s flesh in the Age of Grace, Kingdom

involves man’s corrupt disposition, knowledge of God,

and this is an important and crucial part

of the work done by God for man’s salvation.


Chorus

Only God in the flesh can be

man’s confidant, shepherd and present help,

and this is the necessity of incarnation

in past times and today.


Bridge

So corrupt man’s more in need of incarnate God

to provide salvation and His direct work,

to shepherd, support, water, feed, judge, chastise him,

and give more grace and greater redemption.


Chorus

Only God in the flesh can be

man’s confidant, shepherd and present help,

and this is the necessity of incarnation

in past times and today.
