It’s Christmas in the air, can you tell it?
It’s turkey on the stove, can you smell it?
Colored lights everywhere, can you see ‘em?
Santa stuck on the roof, will you free him?
Presents wrapped ‘neath the tree, will you get one?
Mistletoe, pretty girls, have you met one?
Festive songs on the wind, will you sing them?
Silver bells on the tree, will you ring them?
Manger scene in the snow, are you sighing?
Baby God in a barn, are you crying?
Being born meant the cross and He knew it.
Keeping Christ in the day, will you do it?
Luke 2:6-7 (NIV) “While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, 7 and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.”
Isn’t it amazing that some of the most treasured symbols of God’s love actually celebrate some of the most tragic moments in Jesus’ life – the communion bread and grape juice, the cross, the manger.
Think of it. There was no guest room available for the Creator of the universe (John 1:3). He came to those He had created and we didn’t make room for Him. God’s Son was born in a stable and laid in a manger.
Christmas is a most special time of the year. Not because of the trees, the lights, the gifts, or the festive spirit, Christmas is special because it celebrates –
“Being born meant the cross and He knew it.
Keeping Christ in the day, will you do it?”
