Christmas Time Brings to Mind the Father and Son

At Christmas time I think of the Father.

“God is love” 1 John 4

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16

He is love and He loved us.

At Christmas time I think of the Son.

“I am gentle and humble in heart” Matthew 11:29

“Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:
Who, being in very nature God,
did not consider equality with God something to be grasped,
but made himself nothing,
taking the very nature 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 2:5-8

In the Incarnation two great qualities of God were expressed, infinite love from the Father and infinite humility from the Son.
