Love and serve the stranger

Morning: Psalms 40, 54; Deuteronomy 10:12-22; Hebrews 4:11-16
Evening: Psalm 51; John 3:22-36
The idea that the Creator of the universe had a special love for the people of Israel was extended to include all people because of Jesus.  Christians call Jesus, “Very God of very God … made man.”  That’s astounding!  John says: “He whom God has sent (Jesus) speaks the words of God.”  If I believe God was made man, it makes all the difference to how I live in the world. Deuteronomy teaches we should love and serve God by loving and serving the stranger. If God is present in one man, God is present in all.
