This year the thing that seems to be coming up over and iver again in my prayer life and in my ministry is the concept of incarnation. As John 1:14 says “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.” It’s the miracle of miracles, God becomes man… better yet… God becomes baby! The all powerful Christ lays aside the majesty of heaven placing Himself in the position to have to cry so that even His most basic needs could be met. We don’t serve a God who doesn’t get it. We serve a God who navigated life as we live it and did so flawlessly as an example to us all. Then when all had been accomplished He laid down His life to be our sacrifice… to pay a price we could not pay. Why would He do that? Because He loves us perfectly, in spite of our flaws and it is that perfect love that drives out our fear. We can trust Him and when we place our trust in Him, He saves us.

I found this video by artist David Rodriguez, that sums it all up beautifully.
