Matthew 1:21                                                                                                      She will give birth to a son, and thou shall call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins.

1 Timothy 3:16                                                                                                     The mystery of godliness is great: He was manifest in the flesh.

1 John 4:14                                                                                                          The Father sent the Son to be the Savior of the world.

This is an excerpt from the devotional today:                                     When Your Incarnation began as a formless group of cells in Mary's womb, my salvation had already begun.  Before Your little toddler feet ever took their first step, Your walk up Calvary's hill had commenced.  When You moved from Mary's womb into the expanse of earth, You were taking the first steps  toward the cross. 

The purpose for Your birth was Your death. The purpose for Your death was Your resurrection.  The purpose for Your resurrection was my salvation.

I love that picture. Darla had gone out and bought the print and had it framed. Later she gave it to De. For a long time I had the one from the newspaper on the refrigerator. I just love all the quite symbolism, like the shadow of the cross behind the toddler Jesus. The three nails toddler Jesus is playing with etc. That is one of my all time favorite pictures.
