Word of the Father now in flesh appearing
It is indeed not Christmas, but the Lord has put this song on my heart today. This past Christmas season has probably been the first Christmas I have experienced where the Christmas story has came to life for me. The idea that Mary rode a donkey or that there were three wise men are false, as are many of the ideas we have about the Season, but the most profound aspect of it all is that God became a man to do what we could not do for ourselves.
Christmas is the season where the "Word of the Father" is "now in flesh appearing", a time where the God who created all that is seen and unseen to step into time to save us from our sins and bring restoration to our lives and eventually the world.
The message of Christ becoming a man to die for us is a message that deserves to be sung of not only all year, but for the rest of eternity.
He alone is worthy, Christ the LORD.
