If you had to describe God in one word what would it be? Maybe holy, loving… maybe triune if you want to flex your spiritual knowledge. I would say if you polled 100 Texans with this question, I bet none would answer flesh.
Yet, God in the flesh is one of the greatest pillars of the Christian faith. The Word of God, who has been eternally in relationship with the Father, comes to us in the flesh. The relationship the Father has with His Son and the Holy Spirit overflows and is poured out onto planet Earth. The Son becomes one of us, takes on our flesh, suffers in our flesh. Through Christ, the mysterious and veiled Creator becomes tangible to us. The stories of Jesus, share how He dwells with us, eats with us, weeps with us, walks with us, teaches us, parties with us, suffers with us, sacrifices Himself for us as He calls us into relationship with the Divine. The Word comes to us in familiar form, embracing the struggle of humanity, sent to us by a joyous Father furiously longing to restore man as His crown jewel of creation.
In Christ, mankind is invited to join into the eternal interaction, as Christ who dwelt among us, beckons us to reconciliation. The everlasting God not only wants to know you, but desires to be known by you.
As you walk to the car, as you eat lunch, as you ache for a loved one, as you laugh with your friends, as you lament the pain in your body—share with the Most High, talk with Him, and listen to Him, because in this season, it is evident He very clearly desires to live among and within us.
