WONDER OF WONDERS


Behold here a sacred riddle or paradox -- "God was manifest in the flesh." That man should be made in God's image, was a wonder--but that God should be made in man's image, is a greater wonder!

That the Ancient of Days--should be born; that He who thunders in the heavens--should cry in the cradle; that He who rules the stars--should suck the breast; that Christ should be made of a woman--and of that woman which He Himself made; that the mother should be younger than the child she bore; this is the most astonishing miracle!

"God was manifest in the flesh" is a mystery we shall never fully understand until we come to heaven; when our light shall be clear, as well as our love perfect.

"He humbled Himself and became obedient to death--even death on a cross!" Philippians 2:8
