I had this thought. It's unvarnished but worth sharing in it's rawest form. It came to me while walking on the treadmill at the gym.
Gods self giving love = kenosis
God makes God's self vulnerable. Jesus is God’s vulnerability that comes to teach us and transform us through this vulnerable love. What does that help us do? It frees us from fear. It frees us of retribution or judgment. It frees us from anything out there that tries to stop us from loving with such greatness; the kind of greatness that gets us killed. This love, this vulnerablity, this radial idea is dangerous. Very dangerous. Why? Because such love is the enemy of the world that seeks to control and hold on to power.
