Of Christ’s birth,
But to rise again,
And so we can celebrate,
The cross is empty
The Tomb is empty
And so we celebrate
His work simply stated was :
God made Himself known to us in personal form.
He wants us to know Him.
God, the unapproachable holy creator, has made Himself
accessible though Jesus Christ - The Word became flesh
and dwelt among us.
God makes us acceptable by clothing us with His
righteousness. God makes us holy, and as much as He
is a part of us, He has made us a part of Him.
He is the head and we are His body.
To me this is the reason I rejoice - that Christ was born. And at Christmas, for me it’s not lights, trees, presents, kindness and good cheer. Those things are for me the trappings that make the world be able to forget real purpose of His birth. To hide the truth of who the Babe is, and why he was born.
By His loving grace to me, I pray that I will show kindness and love all the year. That in remembering his blessed birth I will remember His gift to us. And rejoice in His great gift of life and love.
