The idea that a virgin would be selected by God to bear Himself...
The notion that God would don a scalp and toes and two eyes...
The thought that the King of the universe would sneeze and burp and get bit by mosquitos...
It's too incredible. Too revolutionary.
We would never create such a Savior.
We aren't that daring...
In our wildest imaginations we wouldn't conjure
a king who becomes one of us.
But God did. God did what we wouldn't dare dream.
He did what we couldn't imagine.
He became a man so we could trust Him.
He became a sacrifice so we could know Him.
And He defeated death so we could follow Him.
~And the Angels were Silent
