A Man like us…..

6 thoughts on “A Man like us…..”

  1. Fully God, Fully Man…..it boggles my mind always. To think that He was at creation and then chose to come down to this planet as a man is beyond me…..it is just too wonderful and terrible to believe, and yet we do! The whole thing is a miracle! Lori

  2. The older I get the more important it is to me that Jesus was ‘fully human’, the more I envision him as someone who has all the mudane bodily functions; development; aches, pains and emotions and feelings as we do. It’s not what we feel it’s what we do with it – not using or allowing the feelings to move us away from God’s presence.

  3. As man, Jesus shared our every emotion and felt them as we do.

    But as God, He knew, from a very early age, what is to happen to Him. The arrest, betrayal, beatings, torture, humiliation, and the most horrible and painful death on the Cross.

    Yet He went through with it. In obedience to His Father and for our sake.

    Imagine we knew everything that would happen to us in our lives in future. Would we be able to handle it?

    God bless.

  4. I wonder if he didn’t know, that he knew the risk and the challenge his Father has set him but not the details. I wonder if that was the reason for his Baptism – and the times when he returned to pray with his Father as the ‘story’ unfolded and his Father and Spirit revealed themselves in unity and pride-as he became more anxious that he was doing the right thing – wholly human. Just as we do when life unfolds before us.
