No Compromise of Deity – A.W. Tozer

For Monday July 11, 2022:

NO COMPROMISE OF DEITY

Philippians 2:9 (NKJV)
Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him
the name which is above every name.

We can surely know this, at least: that the Incarnation required no compromise of deity. Let us always remember that when God became incarnate there was no compromise on God’s part. . . .
But the holy God who is God, and all else not God, our Father who art in heaven, could never compromise Himself. The Incarnation, the Word made flesh, was accomplished without any compromise of the holy Deity.

The living God did not degrade Himself by this condescension. He did not in any sense make Himself to be less than God.

He remained ever God and everything else remained not God. The gulf still existed even after Jesus Christ had become man and had dwelt among us. Instead of God degrading Himself when He became man, by the act of Incarnation He elevated mankind to Himself. . . .

Thus, we do not degrade God but we elevate man—and that is the wonder of redemption!
