Immanuel, by Daniel Go, Flicker
On this Christmas Eve, my thoughts turn once again to the amazing reality we celebrate at Christmas. Incarnation — the reality that God came among us in human form. Immanuel — God with us. Christmas reminds us that God came near, that God cares, that God initiated a path to restore our brokenness. Here’s a poem I wrote in the early 1990s that helps me focus of the wonder and significance of what we celebrate at Christmas. Merry Christmas!
Immanuel — God with Us
It seems quite strange, that on this day
the Lord of heaven and earth would lay
Amidst the straw-filled stable stall
though He was sovereign over all.
For He was God, yet did not grasp
His rightful place before the mass
Of many laud-filled cherubim
and hosts of holy seraphim.
He rather made Himself to be
a humble servant of His King
