One of Us

The thing that makes Christians unique is that we believe that God became one of us: a real, actual, historical human being, born among a dispossessed people in an occupied land, who was executed through the machinations of a powerful empire. We believe that person is the clearest image of the one who creates, sustains, and redeems the world because they love the world.

The Human Word

The bonkers claim that we make—the good news that we proclaim—is that the God who is love came into the world as one of us. Not disguised as one of us. Not pretending to be one of us. Not play-acting as being one of one. As one of us. As the divine and the human, as holiness and brokenness, all at once. And through his life and death and resurrection, redeemed everything.

The Tempted Word

There is this moment when Jesus is offered everything that he wants. There is this moment when Christ is offered the easy way. There is this moment when the God who is love, who is one of us, is tempted. And as hard as it is for us to admit, for that to mean anything, the temptation needs to be real.

The Weeping Word

The God who is love, who is one of us, weeps. The God who is love, who is one of us, is disturbed. The God who is love, who is one of us, cries out. God knows our sorrow. Love knows our distress. Christ knows our grief. Not in theory, not in the abstract, but in the breaking of his own heart.
