Have you heard Joan Osborne’s song One of Us? (Listen here: http://bit.ly/1uqQPVX )

‘If God had a name what would it be? / And would you call it to his face? / If you were faced with Him in all His glory / What would you ask if you had just one question?

What if God was one of us? / Just a slob like one of us / Just a stranger on the bus / Tryin’ to make his way home?’

Jesus’ birth was God becoming one of us.

‘For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we areyet was without sin.'(Hebrews 4v15)

How Jesus’ ‘sympathy’ for you help you sympathise with weaknesses in others?
