God with us
One day God did become one of us. Emmanuel God With Us. God manifest in the flesh. Sometimes we miss the magnificence of this truth. That God has come down to be one of us.
Not some spiritual personality but a real person. Like the one that you just looked in the eye. God becoming flesh.
Writer after writer has come to the importance of this truth.
The God Who created everything became a man of particular height. Before that he was a baby and before that he was a fetus.
The coming of Jesus Christ into this world represents truth more profound than any philosophy. All the great philosophers of this world could not have produced a story like this.
All mankind has been sitting in darkness and has been visited by the light of the world. The father of all Mercies has come to be at the mercy of the created.
God has become one of his own creatures. The God of the universe imploded to become a peasant baby. Like every infant that has ever learned to talk and walk then dress himself.
Men's maker was made man. That the ruler of the Stars might nurse at his mother's breast. That the bread might hunger and the fountain be thirsty. God the light might sleep and get tired on his journey.
