Jesus Was Fully Human, So He Engaged His Emotions

New Way to Be Human

John 11:35. We are taught to conceal our emotions, not to feel our emotions. But Jesus was fully human and he engaged his emotions. And likewise, we can't be fully human unless we engage our emotions.

From Series: "New Way to Be Human"

God is self-existent, reigning on high as the sovereign of this world, completely set apart in his holiness, all-powerful, all-knowing, perfect, totally good, and invisible. BUT...when the fullness of time had come, the infinite became finite. The invisible took on flesh. The Sovereign One humbled himself. The holy one became acquainted with sin. The Son of God became the Son of Man, and dwelt among us. Jesus was fully God and fully human. He was rejected by his own family, abandoned by his best friends, and felt the sting of being forsaken by God the Father himself. He was anxious and fearful. He was oppressed and depressed. He wept at the loss of a friend and became frustrated at his disciples’ ignorance. He seethed with anger at the injustices of the Roman Empire and the hypocrisy of the institutionalized religion of the day. Jesus was fully human. And it’s through his humanity that humanity can have its back against the wall, the whole world crumble around us, and experience the loss of all that we hold dear...and not fall apart. And not just keep from falling apart, but be fully human ourselves.
