Amazement at the Incarnation

April 1, 2008

Have you ever done something that seemed beneath you, in order to help someone else?  Perhaps you spent time with a group of children when you would rather have been talking with the adults in the other room.  Maybe you gave up time in your busy schedule to serve someone who others think isn’t worth helping.  There are many ways to help those who others think aren’t worth the trouble.

The Son of God, Jesus Christ, did the ultimate act of bringing himself down to the level of those beneath him: he became a man.  He, the infinite God, became a finite being.  The all powerful Creator limited himself in a human body, which has weaknesses and fatigue that God never had to deal with.  The all present God became someone who could only be in one place at a time.  He accepted limitations on his knowledge.  He went through the process of becoming a helpless baby, totally at the mercy of other human beings.  He matured: instead of knowing everything, he grew up having to learn!  And he accepted the consequences of the curse: he died.  The all powerful God the Son died bodily, to end the curse that brought death in the first place.  After that, God the Father raised him from the dead, showing his pleasure at the Son’s sacrifice and showing the death had been dealt a death blow.  How amazing is this God?  He lived among us as a fellow creature, to save us from the sin we committed against him!  May we praise God for his goodness today!
