“But will God indeed dwell with man on earth?
Behold, heaven and the highest heaven cannot contain You,
how much less this house that I have built!”
-Solomon, dedicating the temple, 2 Chronicles 6:18
“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us,
and we have seen His glory,
glory as of the only son from the Father,
full of grace and truth.”
The earth cannot contain Him.
The heavens and highest heavens cannot contain Him.
Yet He contained Himself to come to us.
Eternal glory confined to created flesh.
Rescue for rebels.
Hope for the outcast.
Healing for the broken.
Joy to the world.
