Sitting cross-legged by the hearth in the dark, those words ring in my ears. I flip to the best-selling biography of the Man that was God.
And I read:
“His name shall be called Immanuel, … God with us.”*
Grapple with that for a moment.
I read on.
“By coming to dwell with us, Jesus was to reveal God both to men and angels. He was the Word of God– God’s thought made audible.”*
So this Man Who was God came to be the Song of God’s heart, that the world might hear God’s thoughts, and understand…
And He, in a human frame like mine.
Are not the men & women who are God’s, called to much the same thing, human frames notwithstanding?
What if we were to take His thoughts (made audible) and live them…
And become to the dying world,
