約翰一書四10:「不是我們愛神,乃是神愛我們,差祂的兒子為我們的罪做了挽回祭,這就是愛了。」
  「神啊,感覺你的愛好抽象,請讓我明白你降世為人的愛!」才禱告完,腦中就浮起一首英文老歌:

Love was when God became a man,
Locked in time and space, Without rank or place.
Love was God born of Jewish kin;
Just a carpenter with some fishermen.
Love was when Jesus walked in history;
Lovingly He brought a new life that’s free.
Love was God nailed to bleed and die
To reach and love one such as I.

“愛是神,降世為人,
受時空限制,無地位權勢,
愛是神,生為猶大後裔,
甘心做木匠,與漁夫為伍,
愛是耶穌,留下歷史足跡,
以無比深愛,白白賜我新生,
愛是神,被釘流血而死,
只為將愛臨及無名小卒如我。”

短短的詩歌透露出神的愛子耶穌基督,
由浩翰無限,甘願侷限在有限的人身、時空內;
由萬王之王的寶座,走入普羅大眾的行列。祂印證了先知所說,救世主是猶大後裔的預言;祂的降生也重寫了人類的歷史(History-His story)。祂被釘在十字架上,為我流血贖罪,使我與父神和好。祂所做的一切只為了向微不足道的我說:孩子,你很寶貴,我在乎你!
