For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him.
What if God taking flesh was not “plan B”…but “plan A”? This is what many theologians believe…and so do I. God becoming human bridges the gap of spirit and matter. God is part of it all. God celebrates with us…and suffers with us as well. God shows us that the path to wholeness (salvation) is the downward path of letting go of power and privilege. It’s the path of becoming one with all. Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life” (John 14:6). God did not send his Son to condemn us (despite our many rejections) but to save us (show us the way to wholeness)…even though God knew we would kill Jesus. God (in Jesus) actually became one of us in the flesh. Matter became divine. The earth and all creation became filled with God. Let us take a few moments to contemplate such self-emptying Love…and be thankful!
