In A Baby’s Skin


Baby Jesus

“He, whom no infinitudes can hold, is contained within infant’s age, an infant’s form.   Can it be, that the great “I am that I am” shrinks into our flesh?… What self-denial, what self-abasement, what self-emptying is here! – Henry Law

My worry losses power and my hurry slows to the rhythmatic beat of the Saviour’s heart when I remember that God is here!

~ IMMANUEL ~

The fact that God came wrapped in a baby’s skin tells me that He understands my human joys and struggles.  God does not simply instruct us how to live from some far away place in the sky, He leads by example, “What self-denial, what self-abasement, what self-emptying is here!”  God came to us.  God is here!

~ IMMANUEL ~

The king, the “I am that I am”, enveloped in a naked baby’s skin and held by the hands He created, is here!  This is His intimate love for us, that He came.

What other king?  What other one of your gods give so freely to you?  Not one.  But Love came.  God is here.

“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.” – Luke 2:14

~ MERRY CHRISTMAS ~
