God Reached Out
“.....the One and only who came from the Father, full of grace and truth”
(John 1:14)

Only a loving secure Being would grant “free will” to His own creation.  Our emotions run the gambit and are
often forces so powerful that we surprise even ourselves.  Made in God’s image (man and womb-man), we
have some understanding of
loneliness and longing.  We have a little trouble with patience but we muddle
through it.  But these are attributes of our God and even though ours are evident to a lesser degree they are
always a part of us because we have been made in God’s image regardless of exactly how literally
we care to interpret that.  

So what did God do?  God reached out, humbled Himself, and did whatever it would take to reestablish the
communication, the intimacy with His creation which He had desired with Adam first, and subsequently with
Adam and Eve as a couple.  The signs were there early on - Adam experienced loneliness and longing
just as his Creator did.

“Out from among you will come One who will be a ruler over Israel, whose origins are from ancient times.”
(Micah 5:2)  Become intimate with My Son and you will become intimate with Me.  My Son Jesus will serve
as a lifestyle model for you; the kind of ideal life which you’ve already forgotten over a comparatively few
generations.  Jesus will renew your relationship with Me.  You will again be having access to an existence
with meaning and purpose.     

It is beyond my comprehension how an infinitesimal Being of resplendent purity and burning glory could
possibly take on the lowly human physicality and persona in the form of a newborn baby, yet that’s exactly
what the Perfect One did.  That in itself is enough to command our worship and adoration, but living among
us and ultimately enduring the most brutal and cruel death imaginable, conquering death on our behalf and
successfully lifting us up to an everlasting state of tranquility and happiness is something which clearly could
only be borne out of, and accomplished from an all encompassing and unconditional love.     

"His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge
of him who called us by his own glory and goodness."
(I John 1:3)
