God was in Christ. October 17
To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. 2 Corinthians 5:19
When Jesus Christ was on This earth, God was in some unique way here with us also. Imagine the God who had created all things, who measures the waters of the earth in his hand, who also considers the nations of the world as a drop in a bucket, walked here in a human body. This is amazing. In some unique way God was here, seeing, feeling, experiencing life as a human being. The joys, the sorrows, the test and trials along with temptations he experienced. This was the boss of all things in disguise. Imagine meeting Jesus, not knowing God is standing in front of me. Then later realizing, that was him. I touched Him, I spoke to Him and many either rejected or received Him. All the while God was here with the idea in mind of reconciling man back to himself. So he performed miracles, taught powerful teachings, healed the sick and even raised the dead. He also showed his love and compassion. When scripture says; Jesus wept- you got it - God wept over the death of Lazarus and the sufferings of man. But praise his name he not only felt our sorrows but he did something about it, not only raising Lazarus back to life but also paying the penalty for our sins on the cross that we also may live. This includes living for him while we’re on this earth and living with him in eternity. Today he knows our feelings and all we face upon this earth and He invites you to bring it all to him (Hebrews 4:15-16). Thru his victory over all our enemies we are now by our faith and trust in Christ , reconciled to Him. What a victory God has won for us.
