In a Blanket

"As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you." -  Isaiah 66:13

I love this drawing. It's taken from a card we received this christmas. This copy isn't as clear as the original, which is done by Tricia Gray for the The Leprosy Mission. It's so strange to think of Jesus as a tiny baby, completely vulnerable to the hands of man, completely humble and needing His every need taken care of by others. Jesus, who came to serve others, actually had to just sit there and be looked after initially. Even though He was God He had to rely upon God to outwork situations so that He would be kept safe. He entrusted His safety with the Father and in His meekness came to earth as the most helpless being. When you stop and think about it, it truely is amazing. Yet at the same time it seems strangely fitting for Him to be a young child... innocent and unpolluted by the world. This baby was Jesus, King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
