In this season of advent, we’ve been reading Douglas Wilson’s new book, God Rest Ye Merry, for family devotions. I love how he writes! His writing style is so crisp! He has a way of cutting right to the heart of the matter in three words or less, but never without thought behind each and every word. Here’s an excerpt:

“The one who spoke the galaxies into existence at the beginning of all things took on human flesh and consented to have his diapers changed. But He did not do this in order to demonstarte how low He could stoop, as though that stooping were arbitrary or aimless. Rather, he ordained that stooping this low would be the means by which He overcame the world. And He ordained that stooping in this way would be the means by which his disciples followed Him into the kinghdom.” – Douglas Wilson
