Theme : Bridging the Great Divide
God is on one side and all the people on the other side, and Christ Jesus, himself man, is between them to bring them together.
1 Timothy 2:5, TLB
Recommended Reading: 1 Timothy 2:3-7
Jesus came to this world knowing what it would cost Him. His body bore the marks of evil that we deserve. Inside His sinless soul He bore the weight of sin, so that we could be forgiven. His manly frame bore the hurt and the pain of injustice, that we might be understood. He became a Man so that God would become touchable and approachable and reachable.
The mystery of the ages that will be fully answered one day in heaven is incomprehensible to our finite mind. But it can be answered in one word—love. The love of God reached its consummation in the Person of Jesus Christ, who became a man. As God, He is able to forgive our sins and save us. As a Man, He died to make it possible.
Hallelujah, what a Savior!
You were placed on earth to know God. Everything else is secondary.
