The humiliation of God in the birth of Christ is the miracle that cures us of our humiliating sin. This message was given by Pastor Dan Jacobsen as part of the Seeking the Kingdom teaching series.


18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit. 19 And her husband Joseph, being a just man and unwilling to put her to shame, resolved to divorce her quietly. 20 But as he considered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, "Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21 She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins." Matthew 1:18 — Matthew 1:21 ESV
