He came down for you and me~~~

***************************************

Although we don't know the actual date of the birth of God on Earth we know the early church set the date for late December as a counter celebration to convert the pagans.  Interestingly there is actual evidence that the messiah was conceived in late December!  I won't delve into that here but wish to point at the scriptures where it specifically mentions the deity setting aside his powers and coming down to be a man.  This is found in Philippians 2:5--

"Make your own attitude that of Christ Jesus, who, existing in the form of God, did not consider equality with God as something to be used for his own advantage.  Instead He emptied Himself by assuming the form of a slave, taking on the likeness of men.  And when He had come as a man in His external form, He humbled Himself by becoming obediant to the point of death--even to death on the cross..."

Here is a wonderful telling of the divine logos setting aside his high place and powers so he can be a mere human on Earth just so he can show us how to live and to be our sacrifice.  God being infinite and doing all things completely had to also become a man and set himself in his own creation....The Word became flesh...  Merry Christmas!!!
