Before having Sophie, I didn’t really consider how amazing it is that God himself would come as a baby. Jesus was born the same way that Sophie was, did all the baby things that she does, and had everything to learn. Babies are so vulnerable and need everything done for them – how incredible that God would humble himself like that!
|Sophie’s first day|
The Bible talks about this when it says that Jesus ‘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!’ (Philippians 2:7-8). Christmas is a celebration of this birth, this amazing birth of King Jesus, who is called Emmanuel, God with us.
