GOD SENT HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON TO BE BORN AS A CHILD, SO THAT SINNERS COULD BE BORN AGAIN AND BECOME THE CHILDREN OF GOD.

The deepest sadness belongs to all who still refuse to trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as their Saviour (John 1:12-13) 
Spurgeon.

 BORN TO DIE

Those soft baby hands fashioned by the Holy Spirit in Mary’s womb were made to have two nails hammered thorough them. Those little chubby feet were made to walk up the hill and be nailed to a cross. That sacred head was made to wear a crown of thorns. His tender body wrapped in the swaddling clothes would be pierced by a spear to reveal a broken heart. The death of Christ was NO ACCIDENT: HE WAS BORN TO DIE.

Matthew 1:16, 18,“And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.  Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise:  When as His mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with Child of the Holy Ghost.”

 

Luke 2:7-19 – “And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.  And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them:  and they were sore afraid.  And the angel said unto them, Fear not:  for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.  And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the Babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.  And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.  And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.  And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger.  And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this Child.  And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.  But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.”

CRADLED IN A MANGER, MEANLY

905890_975377595823662_2703083399223076501_o

Gospel Hymns For Daily Strength

Cradled in a manger, meanly,
Laid the Son of Man His head;
Sleeping His first earthly slumber
Where the oxen had been fed.
Happy were those shepherds listening
To the holy angel’s word;
Happy they within that stable
Worshipping their infant Lord.

Happy all who hear the message
Of His coming from above;
Happier still who hail His coming,
And with praises greet His love.
Blessèd Savior, Christ most holy,
In a manger Thou didst rest;
Canst Thou stoop again, yet lower,
And abide within my breast?

Evil things are there before Thee;
In the heart, where they have fed,
Wilt Thou pitifully enter,
Son of Man, and lay Thy head?
Enter, then, O Christ most holy;
Make a Christmas in my heart;
Make a heaven of my manger:
It is heaven where Thou art.

And to those who never listened
To the message of Thy birth,
Who have winter, but no Christmas
Bringing them Thy peace on earth,
Send to these the joyful tidings;
By all people, in each home,
Be there heard the Christmas anthem;
Praise to God, the Christ has come!1517460_752770124803142_3649646075137292875_n1378397_973937202634368_4566171337900341643_n

Grant us, Father,hearts of worship

At this time of Jesus’ birth;

We would see anew His glory

Shine throughout this sin-cursed earth. —D. De Haan

Heaven’s choir came down to sing when heaven’s King came down to save.

How can an unbeliever celebrate Christmas without giving prominence to Christ?
What significance is it to them?
They don’t accept Christ and their Lord and Saviour?
They don’t believe that He is the only way to Heaven.
They don’t want Him in their lives for the first 11 months of the year, only when December comes they become ‘christians’.
Does that makes sense to anyone?
Why is that you never see them celebrate another religion’s festival, only Christmas?
Is it because of the goodies, the booze and the merry-making.
Christ came to save souls not for us to have a drunken feast!

Adrian Rogers: The Wisdom of Christmas

Series: What Child is This?

The wisest choice you could make — now or ever — is to follow the example of the Wise Men and worship the Lord Jesus Christ. Seek Him the way they sought Him. Bring to Him what they brought Him. Recognize who He is and say, “Lord, my wealth, my worship, my witness is yours. Jesus, You are Lord.”
