I often wonder why it is so incredible, so unthinkable to believe the all-powerful creator of everything we can see and cannot see – why is it so impossible for some to believe He literally clothed Himself in flesh? I mean – He is God. What can He not do?
And why would He clothe Himself in flesh?
Because He loves us with an ache so deep in His heart, an ache that would not be soothed unless He walked with us in that flesh, broke bread with us in that flesh, and brought us to Himself with His death in that flesh.
And why is it so hard to believe He loves us so much – when He tells us He does?
"He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He came to His own, and those who were His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God . . . And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us . . . "(John 1:10-14)
