Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. 1 Cor. 15:58

day 269: Xena, Hercules, and God

John 1:14
So the Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father's one and only Son.


If you don't know it by now... you should (if you've read these for a few days).

What is the 'WORD'?

Jesus. :)

Good job ;)

So, today's post is all about how Jesus became human.

Have you ever watched Xena:Warrior Princess or Hercules with Kevin Sorbo. I'm not going to lie... I LOVED those shows in the 90s. I used to stay up late on Sunday nights (because that's when they came on my local ABC channel at around 12 am). They had a lot of the Greek gods on it (Aries, Aphrodite, Zeus etc). Those gods could appear as human, but they never lost their powers. They never were truly human.

Our God-- Our Jesus-- The TRUE God is much more awesome that that!!

Jesus actually came as a human. He lived as a human. He WAS human with human emotions, feelings, hurts, exhaustion, fears... He was human. He didn't just look it.

If you don't think he understand what you are going through, he does. He lived it. He lived  happiness (at the wedding, healing people), being tired (when he got on the boat just to rest for a while), being upset (when he tossed the tables at the Temple), sadness (when Lazarus died), fear (when he prayed to his Daddy to take the cup from him), etc.

He was human so he knows what we are going through. That is huge for us! We have a God who knows our feelings. Who understand our frustrations, joy, sadness, etc.

If you think he's disconnected, he's not.

God Bless You
