In the Thoughts of the Highest

David speaks in wonder in the Psalms about why God would ever take notice of man.   Although Christmas has past, I am still marveling that the Lord would not only notice us, but that He would forsake the glory of heaven and become one of us, in order to save us.   That the way of salvation was for Him to become a human baby, to subject Himself to human growth, human infirmity, and the foibles of other humans, while knowing always that the crucifixion lay ahead, is a wonder of wonders.  Contemplating it brings marvelous tears.

He thought of us.  He looked upon us.  He loved us.  He came to us.  He died for us.  He saved us.

What is Man, that You think of him? Or the son of man that You care for him?

Joy unspeakable and full of glory!
