Probably shouldn’t post while emotional…But studying for Monday nights is leading me into some amazing places. Just read this prayer, from an old theologian, and it’s overwhelming me!
Lord our God, you wanted to live not only in heaven, but also with us, here on earth;
not only to be high and great, but also to be small and lowly, as we are;
not only to rule, but also to serve us;
not only to be God in eternity, but also to be born as a person, to live, and to die.
In your dear Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ, you have given us none other than yourself,
that we may wholly belong to you.
This affects all of us, none of us has deserved this.
What remains for us to do but wonder, to rejoice, to be thankful,
and to hold fast to what you have done for us?
