And Mary said to the angel, “How will this be, since I am a virgin?” And the angel answered her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called holy – the Son of God.”
Luke 1:34-35 ESV

With the consent of a young virgin – Let it be to me as you have said – the Infinite became finite. Bypassing Adam’s brokenness, Father God sent His Son in the power of the Holy Spirit to live life as the Son of Man.

Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of man.
Philippians 2:5-7 ESV

Consider what it means for God to empty Himself for you… to identify with you… to love you… to save you…
