Mary held her little baby boy and saw that God had come to man. The Second Person of the Trinity humbled Himself this way so that He would be like us, even though we were created in His image.
It is incomprehensible to us that the omnipresent, omnipotent, omniscient God could and would dwell in our own frail human form. And Jesus was frail. He knew hunger and thirst. He grew tired. He was angry. He knew the happiness of faithful friendship and the sorrow of backstabbing betrayal. In all things, like us, and yet without sin.
          It is He that saves us from our sins. His forgiveness cuts through the divide of our own betrayals to the Lord. All the sins of all of God’s people are paid for on the cross. There is no sinner that cannot be made a friend to Jesus. This meal tells us that we are His friends. We hold the bread and wine and know that God has come to man.
God, the Father, provides for us. He feeds us. He sent His Son to dwell with us. He gave Himself for us. The Father and the Son sent the Holy Spirit to dwell with us always, even to the end of the age. He is with us now, in our corporate body and in the hearts of each one of us.
          The Savior has come. He is our God and we are His people. Thanks be to God!
