Christmas always brings with it a rush of emotions as we hear songs familiar and tender. Yet they can fall on us with a freshness that stirs our hearts to wonder as they breathe life into our souls. Such was the case recently …

A virgin cried when You were born. Tears of joy and tears of pain.

Mary, a young girl, pregnant and unsure of her future. She experienced childbirth the very same way every woman before, and every woman after, has since experienced. Jesus came into this world, fully human, in the very manner each human has entered. Yet there was one significant difference …

Fully God and fully Man.

He was born of a virgin, fully God and fully Man, at the same time and lying in the manger. Jesus, “Who being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, being made in human likeness.” (Philippians 2:6-7). He came ”“ fully Man ”“ in order to experience life, to show us the way to live life, and to make the way for us to also live.

“You had come to give Your life as a holy sacrifice.”

He came knowing, His life would be the sacrifice for sin on behalf of every human; for this was the plan from the beginning, before the foundations of the world. And He came. For me. For you.

“We were blind and lost, but You came to rescue us.”

He came, knowing apart from Him, we would forever be wandering and lost.

“For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.” (Luke 19:10)

Jesus came to accomplish the will of the Father. Today I am sharing an old Christmas hymn which calls us to respond like the shepherds and worship. Won’t you join me at Woman to Woman Ministries HERE.
