When describing abstract ideas, qualities, etc., it’s often easiest to give them meaning through “personification.”  Basically, you impose their qualities on a person.  For example, if you were trying to describe “evil,” you might use the “person” of Hitler to present them.  Throughout the Old Testament, we see God describing His character and his qualities for man.  His plan from the beginning was to not only describe them, but to have them “personified” in the form of a man–His Son, Jesus, the Christ.  In the ultimate personification of God’s love, He then allowed us to crucify the very One who came to save us.  Today, for those who are willing to lose everything, God will actually begin to personify Himself in them through His Holy Spirit.  It’s through that personification of love that you and I are called to forget ourselves and serve others as we could only dream of being served.

“The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.” John 1:14

In Christ,
