KENOSIS

Posted: February 8, 2006 by piusranson in Uncategorized

What exactly is kenosis? Kenosis is actually the self-emptying of god, himself. He lowered himself to us. God is not about power, but service. He is not god of prosperity, but about poverty and service. Once a priest was asked this by a man,” why must i love god, when god doesnt solve all my problems.” The priest replied,”Are you married?” “Yea” answered the man. The priest then said,” Does your wife solve all your problems? If no, why do u love her and is married to her at the first place?” Definitely God is not about power. Take this example for instance:” When the devil tempted God to use his power, Jesus is saying NO to the temptation of Power. And therefore, The Devil Leaves him because Jesus leaves the temptation.

Christ discarded his divinity, the moment he took humanity. Since then everything on earth is blessed. Nothing in the world is not blessed. If some things were blessed, and others are not. SEPERATION WOULD OCCUR. Example: If there is this temple, and this temple is blessed. Then, only someone with religious authority can enter. But because everything on earth was blessed, We can move ourself closer to god. Blessings is there for us to open our hearts to god, and not for us to seperate things which are not blessed and things which are blessed.

A letter from St. Paul to the Corinthians ; 1 cor 9

For though I be free from all
men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more.

For the weak, i make myself weak, to save all mankind.
