I can’t stop thinking about Tony Reinke’s short piece The Word became skin, muscle, fat. Apart from Greg Lucas’s I love you no matter what, perhaps no other blog post has had such a profound impact upon me in the last year.

What a comfort to know that God became flesh (skin, bone, muscle, nerves, blood, hair, saliva, nails, tears, eyes, ears, fingers, toes) and dwelt (lived, grew, laughed, cried, spoke, sang, rejoiced, feared, marveled, hoped, socialized, slept, suffered, died) among us (doubters, betrayers, deniers, haters, enemies, unbelievers, sinners).
