Oh, the Wonder

"Infinite, and an infant. Eternal, and yet born of a woman. Almighty, and yet hanging on a woman’s breast. Supporting a universe, and yet needing to be carried in a mother’s arms. King of angels, and yet the reputed son of Joseph. Heir of all things, and yet the carpenter’s despised son. Oh, the wonder of Christmas." Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892)

Like all Christians, I too have often stood in awe of the paradoxes of the Incarnation. Although I'm not as eloquent as Spurgeon, I wrote a song entitled "Paradoxology" a while ago, which I posted on my blog. If you're interested, the link to the post is:

A Christmas Song from Yours Truly

Hasn't come out on a CD yet. Maybe someday.

AJ: Wonderful lyrics! The incarnation is indeed, the most glorious of all the paradoxes God has wrought. This Sunday I'll be preaching on John 1:1-5 which really drives that paradox home with great force. Merry Christmas!
