In our Christmas Word of the Week series we look at the word “deity” which describes something as being God. Throughout history, human beings have created deities to worship and trust in. But the Bible describes these false deities as “idols” who can do nothing. During Advent and Christmas we celebrate the incarnation of the one True God, and proclaim that the Child laid in the manger was more that He appeared. He was what the prophets had foretold: the Mighty God. In Colossians 2:8-9 Paul declares that in Jesus was the whole fullness of deity in bodily form. That God-Man is our Savior — not what many want, but what we sinners NEED!
