Adams: one of us

Friday, December 21, 2018
    And again, when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says, “Let all God’s angels worship him.”
    —Hebrews 1:6 (NIV)
    So here we are again, a few billion miles farther along our mysterious path among the immensities. What a comfort it is to know the Man in charge of it all. Without Him, it would be easy to think that the whole of time and space, and life itself, are without reason, purpose, or meaning—as H. G. Wells said, that it is “a bad joke beyond our understanding, a flare of vulgarity, an empty laugh braying across the mysteries.” With Jesus forever between God and us, we can understand a few things, and trust Him for the rest. After all, He is one of us: a baby once, as we all were; then, and forever after, a Man, as we all shall always be.
    ... Robert MacColl Adams (1913-1985), letter [1981]
    See also Heb. 1:6; Matt. 1:23; Luke 1:26-35; 2:1-21; Heb. 2:9-10
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your purposes are irresistible.

Thank you for keeping this poem available online. It has been pasted in the front flap of my Bible, memorized and prayed, for many years. I am including it on my Anthology: Daily Light page at with referral links to I love Christian Quote of the Day and am including the embedded link as well. If the page doesn't load, try again later as it is in development.
