For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. Romans 8:3-4
I do not know if anything amazes me more than the fact that God chose to take on flesh and blood and come down to earth to live as a man. God the Son chose to not use all His powers and knowledge and live as man. If I could live for a time as an amoeba, that would not come close to matching what God did so great is the difference between God and man.
Jesus though fully man was always fully God. He had command over nature. He could raise the dead and heal the sick. Yet He chose to limit His use of these powers. He even chose to limit His omniscience. He did this because He loved each of us.
When Adam chose to disobey God and in doing so brought sin into the world each of us was under a death penalty. Each of us was not worthy to come into God’s presence. All of us should have been banished to Hell for all eternity. God’s love was so great He chose to take the penalty for us.
So, over two thousand years ago God came down to earth to live with us. For over thirty years He walked among men. He ate, slept, and sweated. He was thirsty and hungry. He felt pain and sorrow. He did this with the full knowledge of what lay in store for Him, the most painful death imaginable. He did all this to save each and every one of us. He did this because He loved us.
His love is greater than any other love. His love saved me and you. All we have to do is accept His love.
Have a blessed day,
