The reading for today is Romans 1:3
“Concerning His Son, who came out of the seed of David according to the flesh,”
I used to have this recurring dream when I was a child. In the dream I could fly. I would love to really be able to fly.
Have you heard of pregnancy suits that husbands wear so they can appreciate what their pregnant wives are experiencing? I think that’s sweet that they are willing to subject themselves (even briefly) to an additional burden out of compassion for their partner. I’ve heard of actors blindfolding themselves to experience blindness or restricting themselves to a wheelchair to experience partial paralysis in the interest of better understanding and portraying a character.
If I could fly, I think it would be hard to give up. I might be able to give it up for a day or a week for someone I love if I thought it would help but I wouldn’t want to give it up permanently.
That’s the closest I can come to understanding the depth of love and the sacrifice of my Savior. He is God but out of His great love for me, He chose to restrict Himself to flesh.
I tend to dwell mostly upon His death on the cross and forget that there was a whole lot of sacrifice that took place prior.
God Almighty, Creator of All, Giver of Life, my Lord and Savior, I am humbled by Your great love and sacrifice for me. Amen.
