No longer a worm

David spoke of being a worm, despised by men. Read all of Ps 22 which was an old testament picture of Jesus on the cross.

Psa 22:6 But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people.
Psa 22:7 All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying,
Psa 22:8 He trusted on the LORD that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.

The man Jesus had no sin, yet he took our sins upon himself on the cross. If he were a worm, or just a normal man, he would have been a sinner. Jesus is the sinless Son of God with the power of God over life and death. The reason he humbled himself to come as a man, was to pay the price of our redemption. Legally a man must pay for the sins of a man. God in Jesus was the legal way to pay for our sins, we are justified through faith in Jesus. He is our redemption, our atonement, our sacrifice, our great high priest, our eternal God who came from heaven. He died in our place, was raised from the grave to live again with the father in heaven. One God in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. All three are existing as one Spirit God. One spirit in three persons. Some call this the Trinity or the Triune God. In Hebrew: Elohiym, is the plural name for God.

Man was created in the image of God. Adam's fall made man as a worm. Jesus restored us to be the adopted son's of God. Believe in Jesus, he is our savior.

Gen 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
