    What is the personal significance of Jesus being born for you? (Luke 2:10-11)

     

    To me, the personal significance of Jesus being born is that even though He didn't have to, He met me where I'm at, lost and broken and messed up in this world. Instead of descending from the sky like some sort of superhero, He went through the messy process of birth, and eventually death, and lived among the people, people like me. That's the kind of God I want to follow- One that gets down on my level, and meets me where I'm at. That's what I think it means when the Bible says Jesus was fully God and fully man- that in being born, Jesus became like me, to better love me.
