Fully God and Man

Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Philippians 2:6-8

When you think about the birth of Christ, we must first understand and remember that Jesus is fully God and was fully human. This is a concept that can be difficult to grasp, and because of that we see a lot of people making the mistake of either making Jesus just human or just divine, but he was both

Understanding this, we must remember that Jesus is eternal (Revelation 1:8). Jesus actually created all thing (Colossians 1:16, John 1:3) Jesus was there in the beginning with the Father and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:26) So when we celebrate or think about our Saviors birth , we must understand that Jesus being eternal, decided to lower himself to become human, so he could die for our sins

When you understand this concept, the amazing love and sacrifice that Christ displayed towards, even when we were still in rebellion against him. How can you fathom a God , who cared enough about his people, to die for them and then adopt them as his children!

Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:9-11

This is why we worship Jesus Christ, because he is God in the flesh, that actually came down to die for our sins. Its says Every Knee will bow not just in Heaven but also on Earth and under the Earth (Hell). Yes even the demons will bow down to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords

Understand this, the birth of Christ was for you! There is no other act in humanity that can surpass what Jesus did for you and me! Amen!
