Both Divine and Human

“Jesus Christ is not with us in the same way that he was with his disciples for forty days after his resurrection. But he is with us and will continue to be until the end of the age (Matt. 28:20). This is so for one reason: Jesus Christ is divine and not human only. Because he is divine, he can be–and is–omnipresent (present everywhere). Yet, at the same time, because he is human, he cannot be ‘present everywhere’ in his human nature. A human being, by definition, can only be present in one place at on time. A denial of either of these truths is very damaging to the gospel.”  –G.I. Williamson “The Heidelberg Catechism” p. 84

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
