The name Emmanuel takes in the whole mystery. Jesus is "God with us." He had a nature like our own in all things, sin only excepted. But though Jesus was "with us" in human flesh and blood, He was at the same time very God. Author J.C. Ryle… Source…Commentary: Mathew 1

Why do we worship this son of God?
Could it be it is because he is God incarnate?
But if God incarnate is who he be?
Then why did we hang him on a tree?
Could it be that we were so deeply engrossed in sin?
That we knew him not and would not welcome him in?
Could it be that we could not bring ourselves to admit
That we believe in this man who was so pure in spirit?
He who was born as a child who lay in a manger and grew?
Into the deity who could judgmental of me and you?
How is it that we cried out for his end?
This man who for our salvation God did send?
We hung Jesus on that cross yet he died for our absolution
For Jesus was in fact God with us to show to us his infinite compassion
Praise Christ Jesus the son, praise God the father
Dogwoods and Daffodils.. Did you get yours yet?

Reviewed by The Poetess 12/23/2010
Very nice poem. But I have often wondered why we say that Jesus died "for us" when he died BECAUSE of us - because of humanity's heartless cruelty. I feel that He lived FOR US - to teach the Love we lack. . .and I wish we'd learned deeper levels of it. We need more Love in our troubled world.

Praise the Lord he is all you ever need
