God Loves A Good Turnabout

God seems to enjoy contrasts and turnabouts and juxtapositions.

The Incorruptible puts on the corruptible.
A virgin gives birth.
The giver of the law is subject to the law to fulfill the law.
The possessor of all has nowhere to sleep.
The Master serves.
The sinful anoint His feet.
The Judge is judged.
The Word is silent.
The Shepherd is the lamb.
God suffers.
The sinless becomes sin, so the guilty can be innocent and the unrighteous can be righteous.
The Author of Life dies.
Humiliation becomes victory.
Death becomes life.
The women who could not be witnesses are the first witnesses.
The uneducated teach.
Strength is made perfect in weakness.
The dead live.
Love conquers.....

I'm sure there are more you can think of.

a time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
a time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
a time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to seek, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
a time to tear, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
a time to love, and a time to hate;
a time for war, and a time for peace.

The mortal must put on immortality.
Those who have been alienated from God are reconciled to him through Jesus.
The carnal becomes spiritual.
The letter becomes spiritual.
One is made into a multitude.
The slave is made free.

The weary receive Rest.
The dead in Christ rise.
The giver receives.
Blind guides
Foolish are called
The Weak and the base are chosen
Be as children (i.e. mature into children)
