We have to descend

10 July 2017

Although God is beyond description and approach in His essence, and could change everything with a single word, He came down to us and submitted Himself to the whole of the human condition: the humiliation, the suffering and death. He did all of this is order to come and meet us. He didn’t say: ‘Here I am. Come and meet me’. He came to us. What does this mean for our daily lives? That we should also get ourselves down to where our neighbours are, to meet them there and stop demanding that they should come and find us. We have to act as Christ did. He came and found us, not so that He would stay where we were, nor to just leave us there, but to raise us up by glorifying us.
