Philippians 2:7-8 and a Sculpture of Christ on the Cross, Holy Family Shrine, Eastern Nebraska.
“But Jesus emptied Himself, taking the form of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to death — even death on a cross.” Philippians 2:7-8
Reason for the Season.
As we celebrate this Christmas season let’s remember the reason for the season. Jesus emptied Himself and took on the form of a baby, lived a sinless life and eventually died on a cross for our salvation. Without Christ’s birth, death and resurrection Christmas has little value. If we celebrate Christmas without celebrating Christ we miss its true meaning.
