He Stooped to Conquer For Us

“By (His Incarnation and humiliation) our Lord has, with His strong feet, broken out a pathway along which, in Him, sinful man may at length climb up to the high destiny which was promised him when it was declared he should have dominion over all creation. Jesus Christ stooped to conquer not for Himself (for He was in His own person no less than God), but for us.”

– B.B. Warfield, “The Person of Christ,” in Biblical Doctrines (Reprint, Edinburgh: Banner of Truth, 1988), 186.

Echoes of Athanasius here from the Lion of Princeton — the Incarnation was an act of war!
