Christ in the Boy

Our Lord, Jesus Christ deliberately came down from Heaven to meet us. He knew we cannot come to heaven anytime we want to see Him. Hence, He took it upon Himself to join us here without reservation.

The most beautiful part of His journey was to come through a woman. He was born of a woman. By doing so, He decided to understand our lives. For the Lord to intervene, He chose to be born like us, live like us, grow up in sequences of lifeline like us. In other words, He was once a baby, a toddler, a kindergartener, a primary school boy, an adolescent and eventually, a man. What else can be as delightful as knowing that God identity with us and our pains through His son, Jesus Christ who lived on earth, ate and drink, sleep and wake up, used the bathroom and toilet as we do, dressed up in our like manner.

In the above verse, here was the young Jesus Christ at the edge of His first miracle. Despite talking to His mother, He did not disobey her. He simply talked. However, He went ahead to turn water into the best of all wines at the wedding.

Who else can we identify with? Who else do you want to hand out your life for?

What a friend we have in Jesus Christ?
