Peculiar Baby

PECULIAR BABY

We discover a baby wrapped in rags and placed in a makeshift crib as the centrepiece of the birth of Christ. That, by itself, is not very strange. Babies appear whenever and wherever their births happen to take place. Whether or whether they are prepared, mothers are expected to cope with it. And they do, regardless of whether the birth takes place in a medical facility, a taxicab, or on the floor of a kitchen.

The rags themselves are not what makes this situation peculiar. Mary made do with what was at hand in order to improvise. It is not the manger that is so peculiar, however. Simply said, it was a brilliant response to a pressing problem. Actually, the infant Himself is the particular aspect of this situation.

This newborn has the standard number of fingers and toes. You are well aware that Mary keeps track of them. This infant has the typical silky and supple skin. You may be sure that Mary swoons over his chubby tiny cheeks. In addition, this infant produces all of the typical noises, including coos, gurgles, and wails. You simply know that Mary enjoys listening to this music and takes in all of these noises.

This infant’s flesh and blood, His look, are not what make him unique; rather, it is the identity of this child, which is concealed by his vulnerable human body, that is really what makes him so peculiar. Because this child is God, “through whom all things were created,” the Bible says. This is very incredible.

John 1:3 — All things were created by him, and apart from him not one thing was created that has been created.
