Pausing, pondering, worshipping the Christmas Child


As we await the 25th of December and the culmination of all our focus on the grand miracle of the Incarnation of the Son of God, I thought I’d let you read some of C.S. Lewis’ thoughts on this miracle of miracles:
“No woman ever conceived a child, no mare a foal, without God. But once, and for a special purpose, He dispensed with that long line [of generations] which is His instrument: once His life-giving finger touched a woman without passing through the ages of interlocked events. Once the great glove of Nature was taken off His hand. His naked hand touched her. There was of course a unique reason for it. That time He was creating not simply a man but the Man who was to be Himself: was creating Man anew; was beginning, at this divine and human point, the New Creation of all things. The whole soiled and weary universe quivered at this direct injection of essential life—direct, uncontaminated, not drained through all the crowded history of Nature.” (from the bookMiracles)
Pause now and marvel at the words of John 1:14: The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
