He Arrived with Humility

Study on it a while. Jesus is God the Son, the second person of the Trinity. God is perfect in holiness and majesty, and everything in creation belongs to him. Jesus is the Creator (John 1:1-3, Heb. 1:2-3, Col. 1:16). He was born in the jerkwater town of Bethlehem, and lived in Nazareth — which was not exactly the Gangnam District of Seoul, savvy?

We have all sinned against God, and are deserving of death (Rom. 3:23, 6:23). This began with Adam and Eve (Gen. 3:1-7). God could have simply made the world go away.

Jesus, God the Son, willingly left glory and majesty to become a man. He was born in extremely humble circumstances. That raises the question of why.

The gap between creation and Creator is unfathomable, so why would he want to come to Earth? Out of love (Rom. 5:8), he emptied himself, giving up his glory and took human form (Phil. 2:5-8). He was born of a virgin in humble circumstances. He was never regal in his earthly life. One reason for that is that Jesus was acceptable to the common man, not someone only catering to the rich and powerful. Oh, and that incident with the angels glorifying God in Luke 2:8-14? It was to shepherds, not well-heeled folks.
We expect that royalty, future kings and queens, will be born in suitably luxurious places, such as palaces or the best-equipped hospitals. Their birth is widely celebrated because of their status. But the birth of the Son of God could not have been more different.
