Read the context around these key verses when possible!
Jesus isn’t just a good man and teacher, He is God the Son!
How did Christ, being God the Son, become man?
“Christ who is God the Son became man by being conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit with a real body and soul in the womb of the virgin Mary.”Christ and His Work, Songs for Saplings, Vol. 3
Jesus wasn’t just a baby, He is Son of the Most High!
There is none higher than the Most High. How amazing that the Most High willingly came low!
We needed the Son of the Most High to come low – to visit us, to walk with us, to sympathize with us, so we can know the Father. We needed the Son of the Most High to come low – to intervene for us, to atone for us, and intercede for us, so we can draw near to God.
This is the reason we rejoice at Christmas! The Son of the Most High came low for us! What a gift of grace!
