The bridge of grace will bear your weight.
When considering the paradox of a holy infant born in a dingy barn, so weak and helpless, completely dependent on others for His care and safety, it seems impossible that such frailty was meant to hold the weight of a struggling drowning humanity in His hands. No sin is too great and nothing too heavy a load for Him to bear.
Advent is a time to reflect on such mysteries, deepening our understanding of the remarkable gift we were given the night God came to earth as one of us, to dwell among us, and now through the person of His Spirit, remains at home in our hearts.
The bridge built that night continues to bear the awful load that we alone could not manage without being lost forever.
A baby becomes our bridge to grace and we have been offered safe passage.
