🎄 The Glorious Incarnation #18 ~ Humility

“He [Jesus] was born in a barn to show what God thinks of human pride, of human ambition, of human loftiness, of human hardness…of those who turn to religion only because of what they think it can do for them…of those who always insist on having a place at the high table and are miserable when others are put before them…of those personal jealousies and those family feuds that mar the fellowship with God.”

[Handel H. Brown]

🎄 The Glorious Incarnation #7 ~ Helpless Human Baby

“The Almighty appeared on earth as a helpless human baby, needing to be fed and changed and taught to talk like any other child. The more you think about it, the more staggering it gets. Nothing in fiction is so fantastic as this truth of the Incarnation.”

J.I. Packer

The Nativity

Christmas Logo

Mary is Sarah and Joseph is Dean and Craig is the innkeeper who’s ever so mean. The three kings are the triplets, the shepherd boy’s Daz and the sheep are most of the rest of the class.

‘Cept me I’m important – Miss Watts says I am,
‘cos I am the shepherd boy’s little white lamb.

Sarah’s in blue with a veil on her hair and Craig’s in a dress but his feet are quite bare. All the Shepherds wear towels tied on with long strings and most of us helped to make crowns for the kings.

‘Cept me, I’m important – Miss Watts says I am,
and I am wearing some wool like a little white lamb.

Mary (who’s Sarah) and Joseph (who’s Dean) have knocked on Craig’s door. And he’s trying to look mean, and he says there’s a stable at the back of the house they can share with the donkey and chickens and cows.

But as I’m important – Miss Watts says I am –
I wait with the shepherds “cause I am the Lamb

Then Megan an angel with tinselly wings appears to the shepherds who sit in a ring, And Megan, she says in a very big voice, “Hail to you shepherds, stand up and rejoice. Follow that star that is shinning so bright and find Baby Jesus who’s been born tonight.”

And as I’m important – Miss Watts says I am,
I follow them off, just as meek as a lamb

And there round the manger with Sarah and Dean, There’s more angels and Craig, some cows and three Kings, And Daz leads me forward and kneels on one knee and he says “here’s my present” And I bleat – ‘cos it’s me!

You see I’m important – Miss Watts says I am,
For I am Lord Jesus’ little white lamb.
