37 days of Christmas: day 8

To think that a mighty King would come to earth as a humble baby to save us from our sins is incredible!

Isaiah 9:6 (ESV) For to us a child is born, to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

And to think that He would die a humiliating death to do so is even more so! Thank Him! I've brought this up a lot doing this series but it's one of the best times to remember to do so. I encourage you, if you're a believer, to do what it says in Hebrews 10. Live your life as an example to those around you in humility, grace, love, faith, and hope!

Hebrews 10:19-25 (ESV) Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the holy places by the blood of Jesus, by the new and living way that he opened for us through the curtain, that is, through his flesh, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.
