As I’m reading and re-reading the book of John every morning, I am learning and re-learning this: A silent act of humility is a loud expression of love.
When I was preparing to share in limtay from John 13, He gave me a glimpse of the depth of His love by teaching me a lesson on humility. From there, my eyes were opened to His radical pursuit of His people.
“He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him.” John 1:10-11
At the onset, He became nothing. From being a part of the Godhead in heaven, he became apart from them when he came to Earth. He didn’t become nothing at the cross, He became nothing at birth.
Yet, I think the real thought that baffles me is that at the start of time, He saw Himself on the cross?? And still He created Man? 😢
