The Word became flesh and took up residence among us. We observed His glory, the glory as the One and Only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14 HCSB
I am convinced that He (God) does not play dice. Albert Einstein*
Recently, while driving in Kentucky, I saw a church sign which proclaimed, “Don’t make me come down there! - God.” As I continued to drive, I wondered, “What would it be like if God did come to live down here? How would we treat Him? How would He treat us? Where would He live and what would He do?”
The truth is that God has already done this. He chose to be born as a baby, experience growing pains, go through adolescence, work hard physically, pay taxes, begin His teaching ministry when He was 30 years old, live a totally sinless life, die an excruciating death, then rise from the dead after three days. Isn’t it amazing that He would do that for us? He purposefully became a person, lived among humans, and gave people the chance to behold His glory.
Thank You, Lord, for lowering Yourself to live among us.
