Thoughts of a woman who knew God because she did what Jesus said.
Being God, Jesus became like us in every way except sin. And he proclaimed clearly that he had come to bring good news. That good news was God’s peace to all men of good will. That peace is something which is fundamental to the satisfaction of our most basic desires. It is a peace of the heart.
In heaven, everything was beautiful – yet, what attracted Jesus to earth? The Son of God wanted to feel what it meant to be a human being; to be locked up for nine months, so dependent on a mother. That is why we say, “He, being rich, became poor.”
To Show Us
As if it were not enough – as if it were not enough to become man – Jesus died on the cross to show us his great love. He died for you and for me.
