“Mighty” is not the first word that comes to mind when we see a baby. You’re more likely to think “small and helpless” than “strong and powerful”. But the baby Jesus born in Bethlehem was the saviour of the world. Even though he was small and vulnerable, he was mightier than even the greatest king.
At Christmas, we often focus on Jesus as the sweet little baby (see Away in a Manger), what difference would it make if we remembered that Jesus is also a mighty saviour?
