Can’t Ignore Him

Jesus was not a godlike man, not a manlike God. He was God-man.

Midwifed by a carpenter.
Bathed by a peasant girl.
The maker of the world with a bellybutton.
The author of the Torah being taught the Torah.

Heaven’s human. And because he was, we are left with scratch-your-head, double-blink, what’s-wrong-with-this-picture? moments like these:

A cripple sponsoring the town dance.
A sack lunch satisfying five thousand tummies.
What do we do with such moments?

What do we do with such a person? We applaud men for doing good things. We enshrine God for doing great things. But when a man does God things?

One thing is certain, we can’t ignore him.

 —Max Lucado, Next Door Savior
