Veiled In Flesh

by DebbieLynne Kespert

    As I prepare to take two days off from blogging, I will share my favorite Christmas hymn today. I love this hymn for its bold affirmation of of the Incarnation.

    How amazing that the very God who created the heavens and the earth (John 1:3) and sustains His creation (Colossians 1:17) left His Father’s throne in order to become a helpless Infant! He did so for the express purpose of dying on a Roman cross to atone for our sin.

Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. ~~Philippians 2:5-11 (ESV)

    Christ’s Incarnation fills me with wonder! My finite mind can’t begin to figure out how He lived as a Fetus, an Infant, a Boy and a Man without ceasing to be God. But then, I shouldn’t try to figure it out. Instead, I should follow the example of the angels in today’s hymn who heralded His birth.


=========

     The above was written by my wife and published today on her blog, The Outspoken TULIP. I hope you enjoyed reading it and listening to the hymn.

     Each Sunday, and also on days just before Christmas, she shares a hymn with meaningful content that people can both enjoy hearing and also have something to think about. On other days she writes posts that she hopes will encourage other Christian women to read the Bible and think about the it says in context. She also shares how, over the years, she has come to better understand what the Word of God teaches.
