Now, on to the feature for today: segment one of this week’s Worship Quote of the Week from Chip Stam, “The Incarnation as the Humiliation of God.”
JOHN 1:10-14 (NIV)
He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of Godâ€”children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God. The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
THE HUMILITATION OF GOD (C. S. Lewis)
The Second Person in God, the Son, became human Himself: was born into the world as an actual manâ€”a real man of a particular height, with hair of a particular color, speaking a particular language, weighing so many stone. 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 fetus 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.â€”C. S. Lewis, MERE CHRISTIANITY. New York: Macmillan Publishing Co., p. 155.
