That’s The God I Love

What if God were to come to earth as a law enforcement officer?  I’m sure I would have the utmost of respect for him, being taught at a young age to have respect for those in authority. I’ve no doubt He would do a wonderful job at keeping law and order, but I wonder what kind of relationship I would have with Him. Somehow, it seems like it would be stiff and cool, and I think I would have a hard time feeling like it wasn’t “official business” every time we met.

What if God decided to come to earth as a superhero? Considering the fact that He is all knowing and all powerful, I’d expect Him to be a superhero that is unequaled.  He would be there to rescue me from the most dire circumstances and always in the nick of time. I’m afraid I would get to used to this and take Him for granted; thinking of Him as some genie that is at my beck and call.

What if God chose to come to earth as a brilliant statesman? I think I would be wowed at His eloquent speeches and would probably have to carry a dictionary with me. My vocabulary would grow by leaps and bounds.  I’m certain I would be stirred by His words of wisdom, but I wonder if I would truly be changed.  His great oratory skills would be so in demand that He most likely would not have much time to spend with me.

Suppose God should come to earth as a politician?  Well, we all know the stereotype concerning politicians.  They say whatever they think people want to hear to get elected, and then when they’re in office, they don’t keep their promises.  In general, people mistrust politicians, so God would definitely have a big handicap to overcome.

What if God came to earth as a baby?  Hmm.  Babies are simple. What does a baby know of pretense or a hidden agenda? There is something about babies that seems to be universally appealing.  How is it that a baby can extract a smile or a soft chuckle from an individual that looks so rough and hardened on the outside? Have you ever felt threatened or like you were being manipulated when you were in the presence of a newborn? Babies are so vulnerable. They need someone who will care for them and love them. Babies are the epitome of new beginnings. They give us hope that there is a future, a good future.

 

What if God did come to earth as a baby? Now that would be a God I could love. That is the God that I love. That’s the wonder of Christmas.

Matthew 1:23  Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

    I thought of this post recently and did not realize that it had been 8 years since I posted it. My how time flies! Anyhow, I still feel the same now as I did back then concerning the incarnation. Jesus is truly wonderful!
