About Eight Pounds…

Standard

…of God, wrapped in cloths.

What an amazing thought!

It seems almost sacrilegious.
For many, it is so wrong, it’s considered blasphemy.  
But, for others of us, it is the whole point of our faith.

Eight pounds of Divine Love became a man to dwell among us.

To experience human life.  
To become like us in all things,
So that,
At the right point in time,
He would completely satisfy His Father’s Law.

Christ is the visible image of the invisible God.
He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation,
for through Him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth…
For God in all His fullness was pleased to live in Christ.
Christ is the visible image of the invisible God.
~Colossians 1: 15,16,19

Eight pounds of God lying in a cow’s trough in a dirty stable. He left the splendour of His home on high and allowed Himself to become helpless and in need of constant care. He emptied Himself of all His Power to experience our weakness.

Though He was God,
He did not demand and cling to His rights as God.
He made Himself nothing;
He took the humble position of a slave and appeared in human form.
~Philippians 2:6-7

The essence of God coupled with the weakness of man.
It baffles the mind.
It’s too big to comprehend.
But,
He did it.

In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days He has spoken to us by His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, and through whom also He made the universe. The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of His being
~Hebrews 1:1-3

” ‘Emmanuel,’ which means ‘God with us.’ “ ~Matthew 1:23
