identity in incarnation

After my post yesterday, I read this in an article today...

"Although Jesus identified himself completely with us, he did not lose his own identity. He remained himself. The incarnation teaches identification without loss of identity. We believe that true self-sacrifice leads to true self-discovery. In humble service there is abundant joy."

- The Willowbank Report (The Lausanne Committee)

... and who ever said God is far away and distant?
