Feels like I’m running on empty all the time. It’s nice to just take a breather and draw pictures with my daughter. She draws the cutest stick figures. Here’s one just here…

I’ve got an exam tomorrow – I really must study some more.


Christmas #11 – The Likeness of Men

December 5, 2008

Philippians 2:1-11 (KJV)
If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 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. 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.

It is fascinating that Christ allowed Himself to be found in the likeness of men… men being made in the likeness of God. This is the mystery of the Incarnation. The Incarnation is what we celebrate at Christmas.

Here is some further reading on the Incarnation:

“Incarnation” (accessed 30 September 2008). For a definition of the Incarnation.

“The improbability of the Incarnation,” (accessed 30 September 2008).

“The importance of the Incarnation,” (accessed 30 September 2008).

“Christmas and Genesis,” (accessed 30 September 2008).

“The Apostle’s Creed,” (accessed 30 September 2008).
