 SO OF MA— ICARATE WORD BY ROBERT STUART MacARTHUR And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us (and we beheld His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father), full of grace and truth. John i: 14. And so the Word had breath and wrought With human hands, the creed of creeds, In loveliness of perfect deeds. More strong than all poetic thoughts.  — Alfred Tennyson. >J^ E learn also how poverty may be dignified. Christ was vl/ the only child ever born into this world who had His choice as to how He should come. He might have come in royal splendor with ten thousand times the pomp and glory of earthly kings. He chose to come in poverty. He has put a halo of splendor around every lowly home and filled it with the radiance of heaven. This lowly cradle honors childhood. Christ sanctified by His presence the cradle as well as the grave. Every child may now be a Christ-child, every village a Bethlehem, and every cradle a prophecy of the Christ. Bending over the cradle of the infant Redeemer we see how motherhood is crowned, glori- fied, and celestialized. A halo of supernal splendor sur- rounds tjie brow of every noble mother. The birth of Jesus has illumined the world with the light of heaven and made it possible for every mother, in a measure, to be the mother of Christ.
 
I will give thanks unto Thee; for Thou hast answered me, and art become my salvation. The stone which the builders rejected is become the head of the corner. This is Jehovah's doing: it is marvellous in our eyes. Blessed is he that Cometh in the name of Jehovah. Amen. Ps. 118: 21-23, 26. 364 ROYAL MESSAGES 12-29 For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder; and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, Ever- lasting Father, Prince of Peace. Is. 9: 6. What babe new-born is this that in a manger cries; ear in her lowly bed His happy mother lies. Oh see the air is shaken with white and heavenly wings. This is the Lord of all the earth, this is the King of Kings.  — Richard Watson Gilder. H ATURALLY sceptical man finds it easier to admit the account of Christ's remarkable birth than to at- tempt to explain His unique life if he deny His wonderful birth. The unicity of His birth we expect to eventuate in the unicity of His life. A life begun as was never another life we might expect to see continue as no other life con- tinued. Water cannot rise higher than its source. If the source of Jesus' life were simply human, how can we ac- count for the superhuman height to which it reached.'* What was there in His peasant birth and His lowly family to produce the uniqueness of His manhood? Education will never account for Christ, for He never was in school, in the technical sense of the term, yet He rose above all the limitations, traditions, and bigotries with which He was sur-
