It stays in your head for days-
“Jesus is the reason for the season.”
It’s thrown around like a cliché
But at the end of the day
We may implore
“What is Christmas without Christ?”
But lemme ask you something more-
What is Christ without the cross?
That’s why I’m thankful God’s the boss.
See, Christmas is just the beginning of the story
Jesus lived a perfect life and even more he
Gave up his life to bring God glory.
This was all God’s plan even before he
Sent His son down to our human territory,
Purposed to die on a tree- that’s grace- not by works, but for free.
If we forget about the cross, this is the danger:
We don’t remember why he came-
But would my life be the same,
If my Savior didn’t take the blame?
So as we celebrate this season,
Remember Jesus is the reason.
Cuz Christmas can become all about gift after gift
So we gotta be discerning- we gotta sift
Through- to find the most important one
Look past the three gifts the magi gave the Son.
God came down- the gift of Jesus’ birth.
Such humility to walk upon the earth.
Perfect life sacrificed- now that’s a gift of priceless worth!
