No one has ever seen God. But his only Son, who is himself God, is near to the Father's heart; he has told us about him (John 1:18 NLT).
I guess one of the things I love most about the God I read about in the Bible is his vulnerability. He is a God who can roar, who can order armies and empires like pawns. Yet he willingly comes near to man.
This God emerged in Palestine as a little baby who couldn't speak, couldn't eat solid food, couldn't control his bladder; he depended on a poor young couple for shelter.
And this is what draws us to him. He absolutely understands us, and he still loves us! It's remarkable!
