Of all the unexpected visitations that occur in the Christmas story by far the most unexpected is that of Jesus Himself. His coming into the world was unanticipated by most and misunderstood by nearly all. The profound mystery of the incarnation (That’s a five-dollar word meaning that Jesus became a human being like one of us.) wherein God clothed Himself in flesh and became really, truly and fully man without becoming any less divine is a truth that we can grasp and know truly without understanding fully. “How could the creator become a part of His creation,” we might wonder. However, although the Bible is largely silent on the matter of how such a thing could come to be it is not silent at all on the question of why it happened, and on Christmas morning that is what we will spend a little time thinking about.
