More Than A Visit: God Became Us

Suggested Bible Reading:

Philippians 2:5-11

 Today’s Scripture:

“Although He existed in the form of God…emptied Himself…being made in the likeness of men.” Philippians 2:6-7

As the serpent deceived Eve causing her to question God’s goodness and love, I, too, doubt God’s love when life doesn’t turn out the way I wanted. Disappointment leads me to question if God cares or if life issues are too trivial to be detected on God’s radar screen.

The incarnation of Christ confronts my thoughts, questions, and doubts regarding God’s interest, care, and love for me. At a dark time in history when God’s children suffered and when God seemed out of touch, God did more than visit and access their condition. He entered it. He became a living human being who experienced daily life.

A God who came to earth for me cares for me. The One who faced rejection and endured bitter death blows to die for me, loves me. He who paid an enormous redemptive price will never abandon me or dismiss my needs.

Being a human I realize questions and doubts of God’s love will still come. When they do, I’ll redirect my thoughts to the depth of God’s love demonstrated in Christ’s incarnation.

Prayer:

Father, when doubts of your love arise, redirect my thoughts to your unconditional love demonstrated through Jesus.

Thought for the Day:

God made more than a visit. He became us, died for us, and now lives in us.

Prayer Focus:

To know the depth of God’s love.
