God is not man, that he should lie,
or a son of man, that he should change his mind.
Has he said, and will he not do it?
Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?

Today’s Advent reading from Meet Him At The Manger: The Crib, Cross, and Crown—Part 1
“We cannot really consider the Son of God in a crib apart from His cross and His seat upon the throne of heaven. For if we forget these we will lose our sense of who Jesus really is and what He has accomplished.” Indeed…the first part of the Father’s redemption plan but not complete. Today’s reading touched my heart with God’s love, giving me a picture…
God as a baby to humans on loan;
Why didn’t You run down the stairway of heaven,
Snatch up Your God Child and take Him back home?

A ransom had to be paid for the sins of man. Animal sacrifice for the redemption of man only covered the sins for a short period. The shedding of blood of God’s sacrificial, spotless Lamb would remove sims as far as the East is from the West – forever to those who receive Jesus as their Savior.
“as far as the east is from the west” is a great phrase to remember when we start beating ourselves up for things we’ve done in the past, and which we’ve already confessed and repented.
