The Humility of Jesus

December 24, 2021 Speaker: Dan Guarnera Series: Christmas

Topic: Exposition Scripture: Luke 2:7

Main Point: The story of Jesus' birth anticipates both his extraordinary humility and his extraordinary glory.

The Humility of Jesus' Birth

1. The humility of Jesus' birth foreshadows the humility that Jesus showed throughout his life.

2. The humility of Jesus' birth illustrates how God delights in displaying his power by elevating the weak over the strong.

3. The humility of Jesus' birth anticipates the humility – indeed, the humiliation – of his death.

The Glory of Jesus' Birth

Matthew Henry: "When we saw him wrapped in swaddling cloths and laid in a manger, we were tempted to say, 'Surely this cannot be the Son of God.' But see his birth attended as it is here with a choir of angels, and we shall say, 'Surely it can be no other than the Son of God."
