DEVOTION: “This talk of meeting is, no doubt, anthropomorphic, as if God and I could be face to face, like two fellow creatures, when in reality He is above me and within me and below me and all about me.” (pg 35)
OK. First off….anthropomorphic? Right, it means to have human characteristics. Couldn’t he just say that….ah, C.S. Lewis, once again you make my brain ache…
Anyway, the point is a valid one. Again, it all comes down to Jesus. God sent His son to make Himself….maybe relatable….is the right word. Jesus walked the Earth, made friends, had dinners, conversations…all of it. Very much…human.
Are you starting to see the futher goodness of God? The way that this was orchestrated, put together and carried out was all done so that we, as humans, had something to latch onto. God knew and knows that we need that. We need something tangible. Something that we can relate to.
Jesus, the man on Earth, was just that. He was and is God incarnate yet…He was and is this figure that we can relate to and draw comfort and hope from.
God sent His Son so that we might have life. Gives that statement new meaning doesn’t it? In order to have life, we have to believe.
