As my best friend has been blessed with a newborn baby this month, it has brought a fresh perspective for me as I think of baby Jesus. God Himself became a real human baby! As I look at sweet Zoe, I wonder if Jesus was little like her, how much he slept, and what kind of cute expressions he might have made. I think of the One who created everything that has been made- all creation, and all of mankind- having become one of us Himself. He, to whom all people and all things are dependent upon, became dependent Himself- upon a human mother and a human father. This is great humility and great love for mankind. He was still fully God, but he became fully human as he was born into this world as a little baby. May we marvel and ponder these things in our hearts, just as Jesus’ mother, Mary, did.
Come to Bethlehem and see Him whose birth the angels sing. Come adore on bended knee Christ the Lord the new born king.
