A Mind-boggling truth

“This is a mind-boggling truth: The Creator—who made the universe and everything in it—humbled himself on our behalf. Though eternally existing “in very nature God,” Jesus was willing to let go of his heavenly position and privileges. He “made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.”

It’s hard to grasp the magnitude of this divine condescension—God becoming one of us. C. S. Lewis explained:

The Second Person in God, the Son, became human Himself: was born into the world as an actual man—a real man of a particular height, with hair of a particular colour, speaking a particular language… The Eternal Being, who knows everything and who created the whole universe, became not only a man but (before that) a baby, and before that a foetus inside a woman’s body. If you want to get the hang of it, think how you would like to become a slug or a crab.”
