The First Foreigner

In the spirit of Advent, I'll be posting a clip, quote, sermon or story to direct my heart & yours towards Christmas; towards the amazing event of the Incarnation.

Advent Day 1:
First off, here's a sermon by Bill White from Phil 2, on Jesus, the "First Foreigner." (series: 1 Peter: Living as Foreigners) It is excellent, and will warm your heart to love again the One who left Perfect comfort & acceptance in exchange for utter rejection and poverty. It left me even more appreciative of His putting on "meat" (flesh)-- Bill says "inCARNation" is like "chile con CARNe"-- something with meat on it. Good image.
