God In The Flesh
Journey to the Cross-station #2 "The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us." -John 1:14
In front of station two were a pair of sandels, the kind that any ordinary man would wear. It amazes me that the God who created the world stepped into an ordinary human body. He became just like us. I looked up the word "flesh" and it is defined as the human body and its physical needs and desires. He experienced a spectrum of emotions that we experience on a daily basis. It made me think about how Jesus really knows how it feels when we are in pain, in sorrow, in love . . . Its comforting to me knowing that Jesus can relate to what I am feeling. What humility Jesus had. That he would leave his father's side to save us. I thought about how the Father might of felt about sending his only son down to save us. What a sacrifice He made. Can you imagine having to give up your only child? I'm in awe of His unconditional love for me.
