Good Friday

From William Willimon:

Despite our earnest efforts, we couldn’t climb all the way up to God.

So what did God do?

In an amazing act of condescension, on Good Friday, God climbed down to us, became one with us.

The story of divine condescension begins on Christmas and ends on Good Friday.

We thought, if there is to be business between us and God, we must somehow get up to God. Then God came down, down to the level of the cross, all the way down to the depths of hell. He who knew not sin took on our sin so that we might be free of it.

God still stoops, in your life and mine, condescends.
