🎄 The Glorious Incarnation #2 ~ Alpha & Omega

This baffles all our comprehension!

“So the Word became human and lived here on earth among us.” John 1:14

What a transition!

What a stoop for that Infinite Being who proclaimed Himself the Alpha and the Omega; for “The Ancient of days” to assume the nature and take the form of a cradled infant, sleeping on a virgin mother’s breast!

We have no plumb line to sound the depths of that humiliation. We have no arithmetic by which it can be submitted to any process of calculation.

If we can entertain for a moment the shocking supposition of the loftiest created spirit in heaven abjuring his angel nature, and becoming an insect or a worm; we can, in some feeble degree, estimate the descent involved in the transformation.

But, for the Illimitable, Everlasting Jehovah, Himself to become incarnate . . .

the Creator, to take the nature of the created; the Infinite, to be joined with the finite; Deity, to be linked with dust; this baffles all our comprehension!

(John MacDuff, “Clefts of the Rock” 1874)

  1. “Behold what manner of love he has bestowed on us, that we should be called the sons of God.” We’ve so diluted the Gospel today that there would be more astonishment among some if He had not done that – so much do we think of ourselves, and so little of Him. Thank you, Steve, for these recent posts.

    • Amen!

      Man has elevated himself above the Bible….instead of being on his knees beneath it.

      I think this is why i’m enjoying the current posts from the 18th & 19th Century too, as they are totally different to the watery diluted stuff i’m hearing from our local churches.

      Thanks for taking precious time out to like and leave great comments. It’s great to hear you are enjoying these post too! God bless you. 😀

Any thoughts? I'd love to hear from you!
