PLACE WHERE  LIVESTOCK  WERE  KEPT.    COME  AND  SEE  THIS  THING   THAT  THE  LORD  HATH  SHOWN  US.     AND  THERE  IS  GOD’S  SON,  BORN  IN  A  STABLE,  LAID  IN  AN  ANIMAL   TROUGH  OR  MANGER,  TO  PARENTS  FROM  THE  LOWEST  PLACE  A  JEW   COULD  BE  BORN  FROM  A  CITY  WHERE  NOTHING  GOOD  HAD  EVER   COME.    AND  LOOK  AT  WHAT  THE  LORD  HATH  SHOWN  US.    WHEN  HE   WAS  BORN,  HE  WASN’T  DRESSED  IN  THE  FINEST  CLOTHES  OR   WRAPPED  IN  ROYAL  GARB.    NO,  THE  SAVIOUR  WAS  WRAPPED  IN  RAGS,   IN  SWADDLING  CLOTHING.    COME  SEE  WHAT  THE  LORD  HATH  SHOWN   US.         AND  THEN  TO  WITNESS  THE  BIRTH  OF  THIS  BABY,  BORN  TO  LOWLY   PARENTS,  FROM  A  LOWLY  CITY,  BORN  IN  A  LOWLY  PLACE  AND   WRAPPED  IN  LOWLY  GARB.    HE  SENT  THE  ANGELS  TO  THE  LOWLIEST   FOLK    AROUND.    HE  SENT  THE  ANGELS  FROM  HEAVEN  TO  SHEPHERDS.     DIRTY  SHEPHERDS.    MEN  WHO  SLEPT  ON  THE  GROUND  AND  LIVED   OUTDOORS.    MEN  WHO  LIVED  AND  WORKED  AMONGST  DIRTY   STINKING  ANIMALS.    MEN  WHO  WERE  USE  TO  SMELLING  THE  STENCH   OF  A  STABLE.    HE  SENT  LOWLY  MEN  TO  WITNESS  THE  BIRTH  OF  THE  


MESSIAH.  COME  SEE  THIS  THING  THAT  THE  LORD  HATH  DONE  AND   HAS  MADE  KNOWN  UNTO  US.     THE  LORD,  IN  HIS  INFINITE  WISDOM,    THE  KING  OF  KINGS  AND  THE   LORDS  OF  LORD.    HE  KNEW  THAT  IF  HE  HAD  BEEN  BORN  IN  THE   PALACE  AND  FROM  PARENTS  WHO  WERE  OF  ROYALTY  AND  WHO   POSSESSED  THE  FINER  THINGS  IN    LIFE.    THE  LORD  KNEW,  IF  JESUS’   BIRTH  HAD  BEEN  WITNESSED  BY  THE  NOBLES  AND  THE  WISEMEN,  HE   KNEW  THAT  THEY  WOULD  HAVE  NEVER  ALLOWED  THE  LOWEST  OF   THE  LOW  TO  EVER  CLAIM  HIM  AS  THEIR  SAVIOUR.    THEY  WOULD  HAVE   INSTEAD  CLAIMED  THAT  HE  WAS  A  KING  WHO  WAS  TOO  HIGH  TO  SAVE   THOSE  OF  LOW  ESTATE.    THEY  WOULD  HAVE  SAID  HE  WAS  TO    HIGH   AND  HOLY  TO  CARE  ABOUT  THOSE  OF  US  WHO  ARE  OF  NO  REPUTATION.     THEY  WOULD  HAVE  SAID,  THAT  HE  CAME  TO  BE  WITH  THE  HIGH  CLASS,   NOT  THE  LOW  OR  NO  CLASS.    THEY  WOULD  HAVE  SAID  HE  CAME  TO   THOSE  WHO  HAVE  A  LOT  AND  HAD  NOTHING  TO  DO  WITH  THOSE  WHO   HAVE  NOT.         BUT  GOD,  IN  HIS  INFINITE  WISDOM  KNEW  WE  NEEDED  A  SAVIOUR   WHO  SAT  HIGH,  BUT  LOOKED  LOW.    HE  KNEW  THAT  WE  NEEDED  A  


DELIVERER WHO  WAS  NOT  TOO  BIG  TO  SAVE  THE  SMALL,  NOR  TOO   GREAT  TO  HELP  THE  LEAST,  NOR  TOO  HIGH  AND  MIGHTY  TO  LIFT   BLESS  THOSE  WHO  ARE  LOWLY  AND  WEAK.     NO  GOD,  IN  HIS  DIVINE  WISDOM  KNEW  THAT  IF  HE  CAME  FROM  A   GREAT  PLACE,  PEOPLE  WOULD  SAY  HE  WAS  GREAT  BECAUSE  OF   WHERE  HE  WAS  FROM.    IF  HE  WAS  BORN  OF  GREAT  PARENTS,  THEY   WOULD  SAY,  HE  WAS  GREAT  BECAUSE  OF  HIS  FAMILY.    IF  HE  HAD  BEEN   BORN  IN  THE  PALACE  OR  IN  SOME  GREAT  PLACE,  THEY  WOULD  HAVE   SAID,  HE  WAS  BORN  UNDER  THE  PROTECTION  OR  CARE  OF  OTHERS.    IF   HE  HAD  BEEN  BORN  DRESSED  IN  THE  FINER  THINGS  OF  LIFE,  THEY   WOULD  HAVE  SAID,  HE  WAS  BORN  WITH  A  SILVER  SPOON  IN  HIS   MOUTH.    AND  IF  HE  HAD  BEEN  BORN  WITNESSED  BY  THE  RICH  AND   FAMOUS,  THEY  WOULD  HAVE  CLAIMED  HIM  FOR  THEMSELVES  AND   SAID,  HE  WAS  DESTINED  TO  BE  ONE  OF  THEM.         BUT  COME  AND  SEE  THIS  THING  THAT  HAS  COME  TO  PASS  AND  WHAT   THE  LORD  HAS  MADE  KNOWN  TO  US.    HE  CAME  INTO  THE  WORLD  AS   THE  KING  OF  KINGS  AND  THE  LORDS  OF  LORD.    But made himself of


no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men.

HE LOWERED  HIMSELF  AND  MADE  HIMSELF  LOWLY  AND  MEEK.    SO   THAT  NO  ONE  WOULD  BE  ABLE  TO  SAY  HE  WAS  TO  HIGH  FOR  THE   LOWLY.    OR  TOO  FAMOUS  FOR  THE  NO  BODY’S,    NOR  TOO  RICH  FOR  THE   POOR.    NO  HE  CAME  TO  SHOW  US  THAT  HE  SITS  HIGH,  BUT  HE  LOOKS   LOW.     COME  AND  SEE  THIS  THING  THAT  THE  LORD  HATH  DONE  AND  HAS   MADE  KNOWN  TO  US.    HE  WILL  SAVE  ANYBODY,  HE’S  WILLING  TO  GO   ANYWHERE,  NO  BODY  IS  TOO  MESSED  UP,    NO  PLACE  IS  TOO  DIRTY  OR   SITUATION  TOO  BAD.    NOTHING  IS  SO  STINKY  OR  UGLY  THAT  HE  WON’T   COME  AND  SAVE  YOU.    COME  SEE  THIS  THING  THAT  THE  LORD  HATH   DONE  AND  WHAT  HE  HAS  MADE  KNOWN  UNTO  US.     I  SO  GLAD,  THAT  ONE  DAY,  HE  CAME  AND  SAVED  A  WRETCH  LIKE  ME.   HE  WASN’T  TOO  HIGH  TO  REACH  WAY  DOWN  AND  PICK  ME  UP.    I  WAS   SINKING  DEEP  IN  SIN…
