A Not-So (Socially) Distant God
A Holy God came down to earth
Indwelled the human race
Imago Dei now its worth –
God close, on every face.
He took a basin and a towel,
Got close and cleaned our feet,
As Servant He fulfilled the vow
We made and couldn’t keep.
What man deemed unclean, sick and lost
He chased relentlessly
Paid our payment on a cross
Came close and set us free.
“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.”
