“The astounding claim of the incarnation – the astounding claim of the Nativity – is that Jesus Christ, the Maker of all things, the One who is over all of creation, lowered himself so much that he took on the form of his creatures. And as he did, he arrived not as a strong and powerful man, but he chose to be born as a small and helpless baby. He arrived not to a family of prestige and power, but to an unknown couple from Galilee. He was born not into a palace, but was placed instead in a humble manger.
And why did he do all this? Why did he lower himself?
In order to serve us. In order to save us. In order to draw close to us.
That is the humility of God.”
