=220= Melancholic Reflections: Emotions

I have been reading “The Jesus I never knew” by Philip Yancey and I am trilled by this: The great truth about Jesus is that he is not always calm. He is not always chill. He is not stoic. In fact, if you read the gospels you will find that Jesus is in every case human!

He gets excited over small acts of faith. He gets angry when something is wrong(he even flipped tables). He gets disappointed. He mourns and wept when his friend died. He gets afraid when he is going to face his death. He prayed so hard that he sweat blood.

In fact, when you see Jesus, you actually see that he is full of emotions. He is almost like a kid! GK Chesterton said this:

A child kicks his legs rhythmically through excess, not absence of life. Because children have abounding vitality, because they are in spirit fierce and free, therefore they want things repeated and unchanged. They always say, “Do it again”; and the grown-up person does it again until he is nearly dead. For grown-up people are not strong enough to exult in monotony. But perhaps God is strong enough to exult in monotony. It is possible that God says every morning, “Do it again” to the sun; and every evening, “Do it again” to the moon. It may not be automatic necessity that makes all daisies alike; it may be that God makes every daisy separately, but has never got tired of making them. It may be that He has the eternal appetite of infancy; for we have sinned and grown old, and our Father is younger than we

My Lord is not a God that has no feelings or emotion, he has an amazing amount of them! I ask for these feelings and emotions. I pray for the Lord to fill me will these feelings so that I know how does it feel like and I will in turn become a better person. May the Lord, may me a man that has more emotion and is sensitive to the spirit. Thank you Lord!
