The birth of Christ provides a strong reason for us to experience holy fear and trembling, for only because of that birth could Christ become man and later die. Even though He was free from sin, He took upon Himself a mortal body—and that should make us marvel. That He who is God was willing to become man, that He accommodated Himself to our weakness and came down to our level, is too great for our minds to grasp. It makes us shudder with the deepest holy fear; it fills us with terror and trembling.
