He is Personal


Hebrews 4:15:  Our high priest is able to understand our weaknesses.

When God chose to reveal Himself, he did so (surprise of surprises) through a human body.  The tongue that called forth the dead was a human one.  The hand that touched the leper had dirt under its nails.  The feet upon which the woman wept were calloused and dusty.  And his tears--oh, don't miss the tears--they came from a heart as broken as yours or mine ever has been...

So, people came to him.  My, how they came to him!...Why?  Because he refused to be a statue in a cathedral or a priest in an elevated pulpit.  He chose instead to be Jesus.

From Max Lucado's book God Came Near

Jesus chose to be personal. 

He is personal.

Deciding to die for a group of people that don't deserve it is personal.

The group of people he died for is all of mankind.



He is so interested in you.

And in me.

Just as we have an inner need for human relationships.

I believe we have an inner need for Jesus.

Whether we'll admit it or not.

He looks forward to having a relationship with each of us.

He is personal.
