Jesus Christ has Come in the Flesh

"True God of true God,
Light of light eternal,
Lo, he abhors not the virgin's womb.
Son of the Father, begotten not created.

O come, let us adore him,
O come, let us adore him,
O come, let us adore him,
Christ, the Lord."

This is what we will sing this Lord's Day, and in this way we will confess with joy that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh. But why is this confession a touchstone for testing the spirits? How does it work in our lives?

Besides confessing that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh, we will also consider carefully how this confession gives us discernment. Join us!
