To join in one person

(John Mestrezat, 1592-1657)

To join in one person . . .
  the Creator, with the creature;
  the Infinite, with the finite;
  the Eternal, with a being brought forth in time
—far surpasses all the wonders of creation!

It behooved our Lord Jesus Christ to be made to us everlasting life, by His death.
Though He is the source of life, yet He could not have given life to us without having first died.

What is there, O believers, that should disturb your joy and peace—since the blood of God is your ransom?
