RCL Daily Devotion for Friday, April 12, 2019
RCL Daily Devotions written by R. Fergus Moir from RCL Worship Resources (see more).
How beautiful that God became human in Jesus.
Fully human, with all of our bodily needs and emotions. If he hadn’t, he couldn’t have experienced what it is to suffer as we suffer. And he suffered so much more than most of us ever will.
Everyone struggles with the trials of being human, but some of us deal with a level of adversity that others of us cannot possibly imagine. How can we share the sacrificial love of Christ with those whose challenges so far exceed our own?
It begins with a willingness to become like our brothers and sisters. To create space in which to hear and honor their stories of struggle and pain. To witness to the lived experience of the Other.
Lord Jesus, be my example and help me to listen with humility to my brothers and sisters.
