The concept is truly amazing. The Creator of the world comes to live and be a part of His creation through his creation. God put himself at the mercy of humans. Try and put yourself in the manger that night in Bethlehem. What do you suppose Joseph and Mary were thinking when this baby was born? How do you think they felt as they held this small, helpless body in their arms? They were responsible for this child of God.
What kind of God is it that humbles himself to his creation? I like the way St. Paul says it in Philippians chapter 2, “Who, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God something to be grasped. Rather, he emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, coming in human likeness; and found human in appearance, he humbled himself, becoming obedient to death, even death on a cross. Because of this, God greatly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bend, of those in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
May you have a Blessed Christmas as we remember the first coming of Jesus to this earth, and may we all prepare and be ready for when He comes again.
