The Great Stooping

“He, the eternal Word, the one who spoke the galaxies into existence, was willing to become a little baby boy who could do nothing but jabber, and in that jabbering, make glad his mother and earthly father. He, the source of all life and all nourishment for that life, was willing to be breastfed. He, the same one who had separated light from the day, and had shaped the sun to rule the day, and the moon to rule the night, was willing to have his diapers changed for a year or so. It is not disrespectful to speak this way; for Christians, it is disrespectful not to” (God Rest Ye Merry, p. 48).

  1. That Christianity is an incarnational religion is truly its most amazing feature.  The very God who created the world entered into it and became a part of it in order to redeem it.  Creation matters.
