Riches to Rags

“In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him.”-1 John 4:9

The coming of Jesus to this Earth truly is a riches to rags story.  Think about it.  Here is the second person of the Trinity who has unknown amounts of people worshipping Him in Heaven, there is no sin in his presence, but what does He do.  He fulfills numerous Old Testament prophecies by being born to a virgin in a little know city named Bethlehem.  Not only that but when He was born he was placed in a manger.  We sing about this at Christmas, but do you know what a manger is?  It is literally a feeding trough for livestock!

Jesus came from Heaven, with great humility and love, to show us the way to his Heavenly home.  What love He indeed has for us!  I challenge you today to be humble just as Christ was humble.  You can do this by doing a good deed, or listening to the concerns of another.  More importantly understand the love He has for you, and accept Him for who he is.  He loved you, and gave everything including His life so you can have the possibility of being in Heaven with Him.  If you are already a believer then resolve today to share his life-giving work with someone else.
