Our Life in Jesus
We continue this week to reflect on the life of Jesus. For thirty-three years Jesus felt everything you and I have ever felt. Weakness, Weariness, Sadness, Rejection. His feet got tired, and His head ached. He was tempted and His strength was tested. To think of Jesus in such a light seems almost irreverent, doesn’t it? It is much easier to keep the humanity out of the incarnation. Clean the manure around the manger. There is something about keeping Jesus divine that keeps Him distant, packaged, and predictable.
But it is only when we let Him into the muck and mire of our world that He can pull us out. In becoming human, Jesus made it possible for us to see God. His tears, God’s tears. His voice, God’s voice. Want to know what matters to God? Find out what matters to Jesus. Want to know what in the world God is doing? Ponder the words and life of Jesus. May you find in Him the answer to your deepest needs.
Jesus . . . Light of the world!
