Incarnation

Involved in creationThumb_print.jpg
     Yet part of what he made;
Before the beginning
     He keeps to our time;
In essence divine
     But adopting human flesh;
Perfect in every way
     Yet sharing in brokenness -
          Ours and theirs.
 
To severed relationships
     He brings hope;
Entering our humanity
     Gives a glimpse of God;
With us in time
     He points to what’s beyond;
Being in creation
     Clarifies his image -
          In us and them.
