The human life of God

The Word is not a spelled out Word, it is a lived-out Word. He is indeed the speech of eternity translated into the language of time, but the language is a Life. God’s method is a Man. Jesus is God speaking to man in the street. He is God meeting me in my environment, a human environment. He is God showing his character in the place where our characters are formed. He is the human life of God. He is that part of God which we have been able to see. And if the rest of God is like this that we have been able to see, then all is right. God means well and he means to make us well.
