God In a Manger

Christmas has become such a monumental event that it's almost too big to define. There are parties, programs, concerts, extravagant gifts, and lighted drive-through neighborhood displays with thousands of lights. We try to simplify the phenomenon the season commemorates by merely saying "It's all about baby Jesus." Then we turn from the manger, thinking Ah, now I understand --and go on with our festivities.

But no. We don't understand. It's humanly impossible to understand what happened 2,000 years ago. Unless you understand who "Little Baby Jesus" was and what he was up to before the day of his birth into humanity, you'll never understand the angels' glorious celebration. It's when God entered our little corner of the universe in an amazing way.

The Bible explains what Jesus did this way: "Christ Jesus...although He existed in the form of God...made himself nothing...being made in the likeness of men (Philippians 2:5-7). "Made himself nothing" actually means "emptied." Like a leader of a wealthy country leaving all his position and authority and moving to an impoverished third-world country as a homeless man In doing that he would be "emptying" himself.

But that everyday example of self-emptying transformation doesn't even come close to what Christ did. Jesus didn't just look like God, he was always God. Before becoming a tiny unborn baby within a young virgin, Jesus Christ has always been God The infant Messiah was a Being of another kind and place who took on a new nature--a human one--yet without changing who he is innately and eternally.

In the beginning

The first words of John's gospel in the Bible tell us that Jesus was one with the Father in the beginning of time, that "all things were made through Him, and without him was not any thing made that was made" (John 1:3). We know through current scientific data that the visible universe contains an estimated 100 billion galaxies, each with a diameter millions of trillions of miles wide, and each galaxy contains hundreds of billions of stars

It was this Creator who emptied himself of all that glory and power so that he might enter a tiny planet in the Milky Way, in an insignificant backwater part of the Middle East--coming into the world just like we did, as a vulnerable baby. He who holds all things together by his power allowed himself to be so helpless that his very existence depended upon a human being.

Another kind of power

Though Jesus came to us in the mantle of weakness, only infinite power could work this miracle. Our human bodies contain an estimated 100 trillion complex cells. We are marvels of the most complex kind of engineering. Just imagine trying to humble yourself into becoming the single microscopic cell you bega
