Stooping Down to our Level!

John 1:14

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth; we have beheld his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father.

The great marvel of Christianity is the Incarnation. Not only did God take upon Himself flesh and blood, after his death and resurrection, he continues to come to us in his flesh and blood under the appearance of bread and wine. In addition, His Word is communicated to us, cloaked in human words. In every way God has stooped to our level to communicate His love. This is truly divine accommodation. Today know this: God has made the way possible for you to have an intimate relationship with Him.
