Steve Mickel: Christmas: Vulnerability, Philippians 2:5-8, Isaiah 9:6
/

Any real relationship begins with vulnerability. The place where we connect with Jesus is through our vulnerability. We can see all throughout the Gospels people connecting with Jesus thru their vulnerabilities. The teacher Nicodemus saying, “I don’t get it”. The powerful Roman centurion who has no power to heal his servant. The sick woman who has now power to heal her body. The traitorous Zaccheus who doesn’t know how to get back into the family. Our starting point is our vulnerabilities, our weaknesses, the places where we aren’t enough or not doing it right. “Jesus is mighty not because of His capacity to overcome hardship but because of His willingness to go through human hardship, like we have to do.”
