“Christ is the head of this house”—How many of you are familiar with this phrase?
Yet, how often are we truly aware of Jesus’s presence? How often do we remember that He was, at one point, literally among us?
In Jesus, we see the most relational side of God. One who cared enough to walk in our shoes. Who knows what it’s like–to be tempted, tired, rejected, ridiculed, wounded. Not only does He understand, He overcame all these things and continues to prayerfully watch over us, assuring us that we, too, can overcome, by His strength (Hebrews 2:17-18).
Jesus is still with us even today (Matthew 28:20). Would we invite Him to come and make our hearts His home? (John 14:23)
Thoughts? Here are two questions for you to reflect on:
1. How does thinking about Jesus as “one of us”–human–help you face life?
2. How is Jesus real to you today?
