The Humanity of Jesus

He's Here

Christmas is not an easy time for a lot of folks, particularly for people hurting financially or who are missing loved ones. "Where are you God, I feel you abandoned me." God knows exactly how you feel.

“And at three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, ‘Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?’ (which means "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?") Matthew 27:46

We all feel abandonment at times in our lives. Is God here? Even our Lord asked this question. Christ had to drink from the dregs of the human condition, just like we do. The feeling of abandonment that you and I feel, our Lord also felt. 

And at the same time remember that He is with us. He loves you. He’s with you and He will give you peace which "transcends all understanding." Philippians 4:7

If you are feeling a bit alone, pray for His peace. And rely on the instruments of peace - people who will help you get through it. Remember, you're not alone. It will be okay.

Merry Christmas and God bless you.
