In and Through Jesus

The God who in and through Jesus reveals himself is human. And the human being who emerges in and through Jesus is divine. This is the specific characteristic of the Christian experience of God and human beings…. It was in a man that the primitive church discovered God; and it was in God that we came to know the true nature and destiny of human beings.

    I heard this story one Christmas.

    There was a farmer sitting inside his house by the fireplace, all cozy and warm, near a window. He all of a sudden heard this repeated “thudding” against the window pane. When he went to investigate, he found that it was a bird that had missed the migration, that was attracted to the light.

    (short version) The man tried everything he could to entice the bird to come inside, first his house and then his barn. To no avail. Then he realized that it would take another bird to show this bird the way.

    GOD has been with us since the beginning of time, and will be with us to the end of time. But we needed to receive HIM in the packaging of a man, to show us the WAY. To be the LIGHT.
