Philippians 2:5-11 – Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, 6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. 9 Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Who was this baby in the manger? Even though we don’t hear Merry Christmas as often in the public square, we still call December 25th Christmas Day. What would cause us and our ancestors to celebrate the birth of a child born in a backwards village in the Middle East to what seemed to be a poor insignificant couple? Is it possible that the is child is more than just a result of an inappropriate relationship? I think He is.
The question we must ask ourselves is who is Jesus. If Jesus is God, if this baby is really God, then everything in the New Testament makes sense. All the miracles make sense. God becoming man is an awesome reality and must not become common place, drowned out by all the commercialism and tinsel that surrounds it. In reality, every one of our lives hangs on the question of who Jesus is.
