We are nearing the end of another eventful
The last month which we call December.
The last chance this year to mend our
And have good thoughts next year to
God in His mercy is giving us one more
To make peace with Him through His amazing
And to love each other before the year winds
Leaving behind old wounds, allow healing to
This brings to mind His grand scheme of
It began in a stable; what an unlikely
Glorious herald angels on a sheep-studded
Brought a message of hope of love and of
ďA Savior is born, a new year is dawning
The a-waited Messiah promised long ago
Has come to earth to live among you
To remove the curse and redeem our soul.Ē
It boggles my mind and I canít understand
How the Plan included me; Iím so
Yet the path He chose was a cross on a hill.
He completely paid my ransom, never
The message was clear to the shepherds that
ďRun to Him and at His crude cradle humbly
You wonít find Him at the kingís palace so
But lowly, as you, He is the God-man now.Ē
The call is still resounding over this
Run to Him, just as you are in sin and
failures, so lost,
In despair and hopeless unable to help
What began in a stable was paid for you in
full on a cross.
You donít have to understand: I surely donít
Why did He do it? Not because I was
deserving, so why?
Just simply because He loved me more than
His own life.
From the stable to the cross, now empty, He
reigns on high.
Donít let this last month of December slip
away this year
Before making peace with the One in the
stable and on the cross.
Be sure to mend your fences so love canít
Forgive and amend freely like you received,
Consider this: If we measured all personal
slights, bruises and
neglects by the stable and the cross; if we
aligned everything that happened to us with
eternity, how insignificant they would
in that light. We will never encounter anything that Jesus will not
fully understand and be sympathetic with,
nothing that He doesnít
have an answer and solution for. What
better time to make peace
where there is misunderstanding, express
love in unlovable situations,
in short, to be like Christ--than on His birthday.
I believe this would be the best birthday
gift we could give Him.
First, to accept Him as Savior and then to live like Him. In
December celebrate His birthday by living in
love; that is what He
does! Let January be a new beginning in
commitment to Christ.
Donít carry anything over into the new year
canít take to Heaven with you!
He would be pleased with that birthday gift.
