The following is NOT a Christmas message, despite kicking off our celebration of Advent 2019. It is, however, an examination of how Jesus refused to grasp onto His divine status, but instead came to Earth to give, give, give and give some more. He has great gifts ready for us, and He came in humility and power to give them. Great gifts, like the gifts of Advent: Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love. And Ferrero Rocher.
Okay, so maybe there is some Christmas in there somewhere.
