Bible Text: Matthew 1:18-25 |


Who is Jesus? He is the infinite God becoming finite, the omnipotent God, becoming a baby. In his appearance, Jesus looked ordinary. He was not especially attractive (Isaiah 53:2). What are the implications of this? As God and King, Jesus has the exclusive right to the throne of our life. Furthermore, in following His example, we don’t just spend time with people of power, popularity and influence. We spend time with people of no power, no glamor, no money. We aren’t overly drawn to the sleek and beautiful, but also to the ordinary and unattractive. When we embrace Jesus for all that He is, He will completely revolutionize our lives.
