in this is love, not that we loved Him but He loved us.

Penning this down before I forget to.

He always meets you where you're at. He longs to identify with you. For when He identifies Himself with you, you have deliverance.

***
Exodus 3
2 And the Angel of the LORD appeared to him in a flame of fire from the midst of a bush. So he looked, and behold, the bush was burning with fire, but the bush was not consumed. 3 Then Moses said, “I will now turn aside and see this great sight, why the bush does not burn.”
4 So when the LORD saw that he turned aside to look, God called to him from the midst of the bush and said, “Moses, Moses!”
And he said, “Here I am.”
5 Then He said, “Do not draw near this place. Take your sandals off your feet, for the place where you stand is holy ground.”

the Father came down to where His people are, in a burning bush--a bush burning with fire but not consumed, just like how His people were suffering in a burning furnace, under the whip of the Egyptians--suffering and burning but not consumed. He longs to identify with His people.
***
 In the wilderness journey, where His people were living in tents, likewise God the Father so longed to be identified with His people that He came down to tabernacle with them, and to dwell in a tabernacle (tent) as well. Oh, how He longs to be identified with His people.
***
Joshua 5
13 And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted his eyes and looked, and behold, a Man stood opposite him with His sword drawn in His hand. And Joshua went to Him and said to Him, “Are You for us or for our adversaries?”
14 So He said, “No, but as Commander of the army of the LORD I have now come.”
And Joshua fell on his face to the earth and worshiped, and said to Him, “What does my Lord say to His servant?”
15 Then the Commander of the LORD’s army said to Joshua, “Take your sandal off your foot, for the place where you stand is holy.” And Joshua did so.

the Father came down to where His people are, as warriors about to take over the Promised Land. He came as Commander, with sword drawn. He longs to identify with His people.
***
When His people dwelled in houses made of concrete, He came down to dwell in a Temple, to stay close to His people. He longs to be identified with His people.
***
But that wasn't enough. That wasn't close enough for Him. He wanted to be even closer!

He so longed to be identified with His people that He gave His only Son as a propitiation for our sins so that He could be identified with our spirit-man, and dwell in US. So that nothing, NOTHING stands between Him and us. So that He is able to identify Himself, with the very cores of our being.

Mind-blowing?
