Away in a Manger
Verse 1:
Away in a manger no crib for His bed
The little Lord Jesus laid down His sweet head
The stars in the sky looked down where He lay
The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay
Away in a Manger
Verse 2:
The cattle are lowing, the Baby awakes
But little Lord Jesus, no crying he makes.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (John 1:1 ESV)
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us… (John 1:14 ESV)
- Incarnation: when Jesus, God the Son, took on humanity.
- Hypostatic Union: Jesus was fully God and fully man.
TRUTHS ABOUT THE INCARNATION THAT WILL TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE:
1)SALVATION: JESUS BECAME HUMAN BECAUSE A HUMAN
Because God’s children are human beings—made of flesh and blood—the Son also became flesh and blood. For only as a human being could He die, and only by dying could He break the power of the devil, who had the power of death. (Hebrews 2:14-15 NLT)
TRUTHS ABOUT THE INCARNATION THAT WILL TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE:
2)RELATION: GOD BECAME A PERSON SO THAT WE COULD GET PERSONAL WITH GOD!
Therefore, it was necessary for Him to be made in every respect like us, His brothers and sisters, so that He could be our merciful and faithful High Priest before God. Then He could offer a sacrifice that would take away the sins of the people. (Hebrews 2:17-18 NLT)
TRUTHS ABOUT THE INCARNATION THAT WILL TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE:
3)PRAYER: JESUS CAME BOLDLY INTO OUR SPACE THAT WE COULD COME BOLDLY INTO GOD’S SPACE!
This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for He faced all of the same testings we do, yet He did not sin.16 So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive His mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most. (Hebrews 4:14-16 NLT)
Though He was God,He did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. 7 Instead, He gave up His divine privileges; He took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When He appeared in human form, 8 He humbled Himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross. Philippians 2:6-8 (NLT)
Kenosis: Jesus emptied Himself of His divine privileges
TRUTHS ABOUT THE INCARNATION THAT WILL TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE:
4)PLAN: JESUS ACCOMPLISHED GOD’S PLANS AS A HUMAN TO SHOW THAT WE HUMANS CAN ACCOMPLISH GOD’S PLANS!
For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:21)
