DIVINE PARADOXES

This is not originally mine, but was written in the 4th century A.D. by Gregory, and is certainly worthy of our consideration today:

“Christ hungered as a man, and fed the hungry as God.
He was hungry as a man and yet He is the Bread of Life.
He was athirst as man, and yet He says, ‘Let him that is athirst come unto Me and drink!’
He was weary and yet He is our Rest.
He pays tribute, and yet He is the King.
He prays, and yet He hears prayer.
He weeps, and dries our tears.
He is sold for thirty pieces of silver, and redeems the world.
He is led as a sheep to the slaughter, and is the Good Shepherd.
He is mute like a sheep, and yet He is the everlasting Word.”
