BEING HUMAN


The term” hypostatic union” denotes the two aspects of the Savior Jesus Christ.

He is the God Man, both God and human. While on earth his humanity was as real as his deity. His association with Peter was on a human level, speaking to him man to man, at the same time being conscious of being God.

His humanity allowed him to experience the temptation of every potential thing that humans experience and this without sin. Jesus passed these temptations as a human who was filled with the Holy Spirit not as “THE” God. This should give us a clue as to how to walk before God in our daily walk.

What he did during his life on earth wasn’t easy. From experience I know due to the fact I willingly fail. This is so hard to accept about myself. But there are so many ways to “mess up.” I find it difficult to not find something that appeals to me. It’s the knowing what is right and not doing it that gets me.

Someone made an interesting list of things that relate to being human and I have included it here.

1. You will receive a body.
You may like it or hate it, but it will be yours for the entire period.

2. You will learn lessons.
You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called Life. Each day in this school you will have the opportunity to learn lessons. You may like the lessons or think them irrelevant and stupid.

3. There are no mistakes, only lessons.
Growth is a process of trial and error: experimentation. The "failed" experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiments that ultimately "work."

4. A lesson is repeated until learned.
A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it. When you have learned it, you can then go on to the next lesson.

5. Learning lessons does not end.
There is no part of life that does not contain its lessons. If you are alive, there are lessons to be learned.

6. "There" is no better than "here."
When your "there" has become a "here," you will simply obtain another "there" that will again look better than "here."

7. Others are merely mirrors of you.
You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects something you love or hate about yourself.

8. What you make of your life is up to you.
You have all the tools and resources you need. What you do with them is up to you. The choice is yours.

9. Life is exactly what you think it is.
You create a life that matches your beliefs and expectations.

10. Your answers lie inside you.
The answers to life's questions lie inside you. All you need to do is look, listen, and trust.

11. You will forget all this.
