The Wonder

God

In heaven

Came to earth

Stooping down low

Bent over backwards

Laid aside regal robes

The King became a pauper

Seeking to woo humanity

In the form of a harmless baby

Incarnation – the wonder of God’s love.

Isaiah 9:6  For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Matthew 1:23  Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us

1Timothy 3:16  And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

Philippians 2:5  Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

2:6  Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:

2:7  But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:

2:8  And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

 This type of poem is called an etheree.

  1. Love your poem. It tells a beautiful story in such a small space. Blessings.

    Hi Karen. When I really stop to think about the Christmas story and about how God humbled Himself and came and dwelt in a body of flesh to reach out to mankind it just blows my mind! The love of Jesus will never cease to just be incredibly wonderful.

  2. Thanks for the poem. Its really beautiful.

    Merci, ma soeur. I like to take time and reflect on the true meaning of Christmas. The incarnation will never cease to amaze me.

  3. Oh what lengths our God took to reach us! Praise His Holy Name.

    Merry Christmas, to you and yours!

    Amen, Scotti. The love of God is amazing. Merry Christmas to you and your family too.

  4. Good morning. Earlier this week, CR was explaining a discussion that he had with his wife concerning the pagen storylines that many folks expound upon this time of year. She was wondering what harm they cause and it had CR somewhat frustrated. I replied “The real story is far more rascinating than the false ones.” Nonetheless, CRs family is growing quickly and it’s awesome to see. (I remember CR from before he was saved in November of 2007)

    The Word, by which all things were made. became flesh and dwelt among us. “AWESOME BEYOND DESCRIPTION!”

    Great poetic reading. Blessings always in Jesus name.

    Hi Timbob. The real story of Jesus is certainly more fascinating than Santa Claus, Rudolph or any other fictional character associated with the Christmas season. None of these could do what Jesus did for our lost souls. Thanks for stopping by today.

  5. Oops. I meant “FASCINATING” not rascinating. I get in such a hurry that new words are formed daily.

    I would spell it r’ascinating and use it for a contraction for “really fascinating”. 🙂

  6. very beautiful poems loved it:) keep it up..!

    Thank you for the compliment and for stopping by my blog. Without God, I can do nothing, but whenever He gives me inspiration, I will write.
