For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6)
How did Jesus come to be Lord of the whole world? Did He come as a royalty, with glittering gold and glistening gemstones? Or did He come as a valiant warrior, adorned with the skulls of those whom he killed in battle ?
No. He came—of all forms—as a baby. A dependent little baby.
Why would Jesus come vulnerable and small? Because He came to rule the world not through a display of power or of affluence, but through a display of humility. Of love.
