“The tremendous revelation of Christianity is not the Fatherhood of God, but the Babyhood of God – God became the weakest thing in His own creation, and in flesh and blood He levered it back to where it was intended to be. No one helped Him; it was done absolutely by God manifest in human flesh. God has undertaken not only to repair the damage, but in Jesus Christ the human race is put in a better condition than when it was originally designed.”

“Beware of posing as a profound person; God became a Baby.”

- Oswald Chambers

    Much of the gospel is profound, much of who we are is profound. Why God would use Mary & Elizabeth as part of that plan in keeping a promise to Abraham & Sarah is gobsmacking. Making it known to a bunch of lowly Shepherds out in a feild makes it pretty clear that he is not as impressed by the things we seem to be at times.

    Meekness, majesty & a manger, not the usual way of making things known…
