People ask why Jesus came as a man instead of a woman, and many theologians have differing opinions of the exact reason why. I have my own explanation.
Jesus came to say, “I died for your sins. I forgive you. I will no longer hold your sins against you.” Which would be a lot harder to believe coming from a woman.
If our own mothers show us their stretchmarks and say, “I used to be sexy until you came along!” How much more would we expect God, coming as a perfect woman without blemish, to say to us, “You know, I used to have such lovely hands. But you had to go steal that chocolate bar!”
