(In saying, “He ascended,” what does it mean but that he had also descended into the lower regions, the earth?  He who descended is the one who also ascended far above all the heavens, that he might fill all things.) (ESV)
I have heroes. We all do. I can name to you my favorite NFL players. I can list for you musicians that I look up to. And there are also pastors and teachers that I greatly respect. All of these people are in a sense, "untouchable." I may go to a concert and see them. I might even have an opportunity to meet one of these people for a moment or two. I have met a few of my heroes. But, the reality is this. None of these heroes of mine are going to get intimately involved in my real world.
At a scale far grander than what I have described, the Creator of the Universe has not only decided to make a one minute appearance to mankind, but rather, he came to Earth and became one of us! Paul reminds us that before Christ ascended back to the Father in Heaven he descended into the lower regions, the earth. It truly is amazing that God would want anything to do with us. But he went to the greatest length possible to empty himself so that ultimately he may fill all things.
 what is man that you are mindful of him,
and the son of man that you care for him? (ESV)
How do you perceive the Savior? Is he unattainable? Friend, he came to Earth and became like us, conquering death for us. Receive his forgiveness and celebrate an eternal relationship with him. He descended to us. Praise his name.
