If you were the creative and artsy type what kind of song would you write about your child that has just been born. Lots of musicians have done this over the years and many can be very moving in what people say. But this father sings or may have spoken a song of praise and joy first to the Lord and then a few thoughts for his new born son. Take a look at how profound these words he would speak about the soon to be born Messiah and all the joy he would bring to humanity.
We all love to visit those who are very special to us, and sometimes it’s hard to know who benefits more from the visit, us or them or maybe it works out to being both of you – nice. But God did not abandon humanity as some think, rather the Trinity had always there eye on our plight of brokenness. They actually let humanity navigate life so long without God interfering so to speak, but what we did is create a very unsavory picture of God – and so they chose to visit us through the incarnation of Christ. He becoming like us, immersed in our humanity, our sin, our darkness and even willing to die at our hands – why because of his Holiness, no, out of his love for the renewal of relationship. We got visited and we continue to experience its rewards.
