I don’t have a lot to say tonight (shocking) but as Christmas nears, I remembered a post I read last year that really made me think more about our Savior’s birth. We all have in our mind a vision of what happened that night. Christmas carols may lead us to believe it was serene, despite an undesirable birthing location. There isn’t a lot of detail in Scripture about what went on in that barn. According to one of the boys’ books, Mary and Joseph arrived at the inn, were led to a barn, and she had a baby. Slam bam.
All you mothers out there know there is nothing “slam bam” about birth!
Well most of you anyway.
Ok, I kinda sneezed out Drew.
HOWEVER. I wanted to share this post. Although it’s not Scripture, and just one person’s perception of that night, it really made me think. Jesus is our Savior. But Jesus was a human.
Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death – even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted him to the highest place, and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
