Songwriter Joan Osborne asked, “What if God were one of us?” Turns out He was. Hagar called Jesus “the one who sees me.” He not only sees us, but chose to become us, taking on human form and living in our world. He willingly chose to limit His divinity so He could fully experience our humanity. Do we need to better limit our human will so He can more fully do His work in our life?
1. What difference does His humanity make in the way you think about Jesus?
2. What choices do you make that may limit His divine power in your life?
Challenge: How are you limiting Jesus’ presence in your life? We need to recognize how we’re limiting his presence and correct it. Look at your calendar. Are you limiting God there? Is there time for Him? Time to get to know Him? Look at yours and see if you’ve scheduled God into it.
