the vulnerability of God

1 John 3:16 opens to us a view into the universe’s true definition of love and a peek into the heart of God’s relationship with humanity:  “This is how we know what love is:  Jesus Christ laid down His life for us.”  

Gary Burge writes about this in this way:  “The ultimate act of God’s self-revelation is found in His activity in Jesus Christ . . . never before had God done such a thing in history [on this level and scope]!  Christ is the unveiling of God’s heart; He is God, displayed vulnerably before the world.
