Today’s blog post comes from another author called Scott Erickson and has a shocking image below. It’s there to be thought-proving and maybe even shocking, but it’s honest too. You can find the original post here on Scott’s Instagram page.
For unto us a child is born. A son has been given.
And His name shall be called:
If you live long enough…. your life will begin and end with someone wiping your butt.
From vulnerability to vulnerability we live… admittingly with some real strength seasons in between.
But what can we learn from Love’s incarnation about our own incarnation?
How does Love restore what it loves?
By being with what It loves.
How does Love defeat it’s enemy Death?
By accepting it.
How does love show itself Mightily?
It humbles itself. And owns being human.
It accepts the humility and weakness of being born.
It accepts the humility and vulnerability of eventually dying.
And this humble acceptance is the Mighty ground that it saves the world through.
The mightiest thing you can do is accept the vulnerability of being born and eventually dying. Being here as your incarnation. And when you do, you will notice that Love has been mightily with you the whole time. .
“Your attitude should be the same as Jesus Christ: Who being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself lower, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. and being found in appearance as a human, he humbled himself… and become obedient to death, even (if it happens to be a ) death on a cross,” Phil 2
“The reason my father loves me is i lay down my life – only to take it up again. no one takes it from me, but i lay it down of my own accord.” John 10
“Although he was a son, he learned obedience from what he suffered” Heb 5
