Our Low Estate

van gogh stairs

Someone once told me that on earth the reality is that we live on a ladder system. We put people above and below us, and people put us above and below them. It is a bitter reality. But it doesn’t end there. She told me that there’s more- a greater reality. One where God does not put us on a ladder. Instead, humans live on a horizontal plane. Not only that, but Christ climbed down the ladder to be with us. Though the reality of the worldly ladder often hurts, I have comfort and peace because I know Christ chose to dwell with me in my low estate. #thankful #formanyreasons

There is truly no God like you. “though [Jesus] was in the form of God, [he] did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.” Ephesians 2:6-9
