Philippians 2:6-7 Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.
This morning I am wondering about the fully human and fully divine character of God in Jesus. God could so easily have come to earth with lots of fanfare and loud, spectacular music, miracles right and left, abundant crops everywhere, and no more tears, ever. But He came to earth humbly, as Jesus. What lessons would we have learned about how to live our lives, if God had come to the earth in a golden chariot? Jesus came to earth to show us how to be the best human beings we could be. He did not expect us to be little divine gods. Being a good human is enough- it is everything. God is God, and we are man, led by God. Holy Father, I am so thankful for your presence in my life, and for your gift of Jesus Christ. Help me, Lord, to look to you first when I need direction. Help me to see the right way to go, led by you. Amen
