Two years ago my fiancee and I took a trip to California, and we had the pleasure of visiting the Yosemite Valley in Yosemite National Park. As we stood at a point called Tunnel View, we could see the whole valley of evergreens, waterfalls, the river, and magnificent rock faces. We stood in wonder—in wonder of God’s creation. I am constantly in wonder of that place and the magnificence of creation. In this season of Lent I stand in even greater wonder that the God who is powerful enough to form the heavens and the earth would humbly submit to experience the depths of humanity and death on a cross out of love for us.
“Adopt the attitude that was in Christ Jesus: Though he was in the form of God, he did not consider being equal with God something to exploit. But he emptied himself by taking the form of a slave and by becoming like human beings. When he found himself in the form of a human, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.” (Philippians 2:5-8)
