Dr. John Woodhouse: “Christmas Day” (2 Corinthians 8:9)

December 27, 2015

For an excellent Christmas message, try this sermon for Christmas Day by Dr. John Woodhouse.  If I am understanding correctly he was preaching at Moore College in Australia, and the text is one we don’t always think about at Christmas: 2 Corinthians 8:9, which reads in the ESV “For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that although he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you by his poverty might become rich.”  This certainly states very well part of the mystery of the Incarnation – that He who was King and Ruler of Heaven came down to become one of us.  Rather than scorning us, He loved us so much He became poor.
