HOLINESS AMONG US

Shout and be glad, Jerusalem. I am coming, and I will live among you,” says the LORD.
ZECHARIAH 2:10

God became a baby. He entered a world … of problems and heartaches. “The Word became human and lived among us … He was full of grace and truth” (John 1:14).

The operative word of the verse is among. He lived among us. He donned the costliest of robes: a human body. He made a throne out of a manger and a royal court out of some cows. He took a common name—Jesus—and made it holy. He took common people and made them the same. He could have lived over us or away from us.

But he didn’t. He lived among us.

He became a friend of the sinner and brother of the poor.
