WHAT DOES CHRISTMAS MEAN?
C is for Christ who came as a babe…living He loved me, dying He saved me, buried He carried my sins far away, rising He justified freely forever … One day he’s coming, Oh glorious day!
H is for hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time (Titus 1:2)
R is for righteousness that has been revealed by God, that is by faith from first to last. (Romans 1:17)
I is for Immanuel (God with us-John 1)
S is for shepherds of whom Jesus Christ is the Chief Shepherd…the Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want. (Psalm 23)
T is for the treasures of wisdom and knowledge that are hidden in Christ. (Colossians 2:3)
M is for magi who came to worship Jesus for He is truly worthy. (Matthew 2)
A is for angels who sang, “Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to men on whom His favor rests.” (Luke 2:14)
S is for the star that led to the bright Morning Star…Jesus Himself. (Revelation 22:16)
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the word was God… and the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth,” the Bible says. That is the mystifying core of Christmas, an awesome concept that has challenged hearts and minds since. It holds that Jesus was truly human, sharing the nature of all people, yet also truly God. “Emmanuel — God with us,” Scripture says, “The light of the world.”
