A meditation....

Q. What improvement ought we to make of Christ’s incarnation?

A. To claim him as our own, in virtue of his wearing our nature, saying, “Unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given,” Isaiah 9:6; or, which is the same thing, to follow the practice of Ruth, in lying down at the feet of our blessed Boaz, saying, “Spread thy skirt over me;” that is, take me, a poor bankrupt sinner, into a marriage relation with thee, “for thou art my near kinsman,” Ruth 3:9.

~A  catechism question that I got from our catechism class many Lord's days ago and thought was beautiful.

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
