We have only a few short verses of what happened the night Jesus was born. We have no real idea what it was like for Mary or Joseph or the shepherds. . . Or for the King of Kings who stepped down into our world as a human baby. Although it probably wasn't exactly like the creche, I am thankful for our creche. It reminds me of all the love of family and friends that Jesus has given me and the greater love of our Savior who . .
"did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death – even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." Philippians 2:6-11
