If I Could Just Become a Bird…

“I will be a Father to Him and He shall be a Son to Me…” – Hebrews 1:5

I love to tell the story about the day a bird, caught in our chimney, flew into our house. We tried desperately to get it out the door, but it didn’t get the message. After a while, totally frustrated, I had the ridiculous thought, “If I could become a bird for a few seconds and talk its language, I could show it how to be free.”

Then, I thought for a minute and I remembered that God had done just that!

The Creator of the universe became one of His own creatures – a man – in order to communicate perfectly with mankind. Jesus took on a human body and personality, with all its limitations, so He could show you and I how to be free and understand how to have a relationship with God.

When we get to know the God who loves us so much that He would humble Himself to become a man, then every day will have a sense of wonder.
