What sort of arrangements would you expect for the arrival of the most powerful man on earth?

Tight security? Press releases? Luxury accommodation and chartered flights? The freedom of the city?

US President, Barack Obama, arrives in South Africa this week and the press is alive with debate over his visit, his security, his agenda.

About 2000 years ago, THE MOST POWERUL BEING IN THE UNIVERSE visited earth. His welcome was quite the opposite.

Luke chapter 2 shows us how Jesus became vulnerable, unknown, poor, common, rejected and killed. What amazing humility and love. Why? He came as a servant.

Next time, he’s returning as the king. And then Obama will be bowing too, just like the rest of us.
