God Became Man

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. --JOHN 1:14

For thirty-three years Jesus felt everything you and I have ever felt. To think of Jesus in such a light is-well, it seems almost irreverent, doesn't it? It's not something we like to do; it's uncomfortable. It is much easier to keep the humanity out of the incarnation. There is something about keeping Him divine that keeps Him distant, packed, predictable. But don't do it. For heaven's sake, don't. Let Him be as human as He intended to be. Let Him into the mire and muck of our world. For only if we let Him in can He pull us out. Listen to Him.

"Love your neighbor" was spoken by a man whose neighbors tried to kill Him --(Mark 12:31).

"Pray for those who persecute you" came from the lips that would be begging God to forgive His murderers (Matthew 5:44). "I am with you always" are the words of a God who in one instant did the impossible to make it all possible for you and me (Matthew 28:20).

It all happened in a moment. In one moment?a most remarkable moment. The Word became flesh.

There will be another. The world will see another instantaneous transformation. You see, in becoming man, God made it possible for man to see God. When Jesus went home, He left the back door open. As a result, "We shall all be changed-in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye" (1 Corinthians 15:51?52, NKJV).

SPREAD THE WORD THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

God became man and lived among us so that we could one day dwell with Him.
