The chasm has been crossed

The miracle of all miracles is the incarnation, the fact that the eternal Son of the Father, the one who eternally dwells in the bosom of the Father and shares all things with Him in the fellowship of the Spirit, became human.  And in becoming human, the Father’s Son earthed his own relationship with God the Father almighty.  When the Son of God crossed the chasm between the Creator and the creature, when he entered into the world of humanity, he did not leave his Father behind, nor did he step outside of the fellowship of the Spirit.  The incarnation means that the very life of the Trinity–the inner knowing and fellowship, the mutual delight and love of the Father, Son and Spirit–has now set up shop on earth . . . The eternal divine life of the Holy Trinity is no longer only divine; it is now divine and human.  That is the stunning miracle of the incarnation.  The unimaginable chasm between the Creator and the creature has been crossed by God.
