"But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship" Galatians 4:4-5 (NIV)
Over 2000 years ago, God became flesh and walked this earth.
He walked this earth with a purpose.
Born in a manger, walked the earth, facing persecution.
He came, he died, and he rose, so that we can be adopted as his sons and daughters.
Many people can not honestly say they could answer that call.
While the truth is that Jesus was altogether God, he was also fully man.
He hurt as we hurt, he suffered as we suffer, he was ridiculed, despised, and shamed.
But despite the things that came up against him, he preserved, he pressed, and he did what no other man on this earth has done.
He did the impossible; he answered the impossible call so that you and I can have eternal life.
What beauty is found in the Savior.
What beauty found in the truth that he answered that call.
And what beauty that the answer represents.
In this season, let us keep the truth of the cross at the center.
Let us not get so focused on our problems that we miss the problem solver.
Let us not miss the beauty of the answer to the call.
Let us not forget the answer that is found in the cross!
