Jesus’ huge act of humility in becoming one of us might make a bit more sense if it was for just a little while – like the 33 or so years Jesus lived on earth. In the context of eternity that’s not a very long time I guess.
The amazing truth is that when Jesus got himself a real human body and became a man – it was forever. Jesus will always be human – fully human and fully God.
There was no expiry date on Jesus’ decision to become one of us.
That’s commitment. That’s also our great hope. Jesus really is in this with us for the longest haul.
How about that idea as something extra to celebrate and thank God for TODAY!
