Why is it important that God became fully human?
Does Jesus seem approachable to you? Does He seem like someone you could be vulnerable with? Why or why not? What shapes how you see Him?
What is something you are dealing with that seems particularly difficult right now? Jesus understands! Confess that to Him and invite Him to help you. Consider bringing someone else to walk alongside you.
Who are people in your life you can talk about anything with?
Jesus, I want to look more like You. Too often, following the system of this world, I try to promote myself. I try to get more, be better, rise through the ranks, and find my worth in myself and what others think of me.
But You, humble King, did not consider equality with God something to use to Your own advantage. You chose to step into this world to seek out the hurting, the hiding, the lost… people, like me. You extended a hand of empathy toward broken sinners living without hope. People, like me. You understand everything I experience and what it means to live in a broken world. I know that I can trust You and bring my feelings, thoughts, fears, and brokenness to You. You understand.
I cannot comprehend this compassion. I cannot imagine giving up the glory of heaven to live among sinners like me in this fallen world. But You are the definition of love, and You are relentless in Your pursuit of those in need. Break my heart for the hurting around me, mend it again in Your love, and fill it with Your compassion for the brokenness around me. Help me look more like You. Amen.
