Christmas Has a Purpose – a quote from C.S. Lewis

God descends to re-ascend. He comes down; … down to the very roots and sea-bed of the Nature He has created. But He comes down to come up again and bring the while ruined world up with Him.

C.S.Lewis, Miracles

    Will you quit it with all the descending and humility stuff — I feel lower than a snake’s belly already! No, I’m just kidding, Tim. 🙂 This is a great thing to contemplate at Advent and Christmas time: the descent of God to be Emmanuel, God With Us. And Lewis’s words are always so striking: “down to the very roots and sea-bed of the Nature He has created.”
