Jesus walked the earth rehumanizing the dehumanized and cleansing the unclean. Why? Because his heart refused to let him sleep in. Sadness confronted him in every town. So wherever he went,whenever he was confronted with pain and longing, he spread the good contagion of his cleansing mercy. Thomas Goodwin said, “Christ is love covered over in ﬂesh.” Picture it. Pull back the ﬂesh on the Stepford Wives or the Terminator and you ﬁnd machine; pull back the ﬂesh on Christ and you ﬁnd love.
