Riches to Rags

Philippians 2:5-8

It was believed the Messiah might arrive in fire, revealed in a dazzling vision of heavenly glory. Others believed they would see a military commander, marching into Jerusalem, vanquishing the people from their ongoing oppression.

As history showed, both assumptions were proven false. Who would have imagined that Almighty God - Messiah - would come into the world as a baby, grow up in a backwoods town, and suffer scorn and ridicule? Why would the true God lower himself to become everything that we are, except without sin?
