It’s About the Cross

December 1, 2012

Can you believe it!?! December is here already! And that means that Christmas is not very far around the corner either! As we celebrate Jesus’ birth, here’s an excellent song to listen to. Mom shared this song with me last year, and it gave me a fresh perspective on the meaning of Christmas.

The beginning of the story (Jesus’ birth) is wonderful, but it’s the ending (Jesus’ death and resurrection) is the part that saves us, and that’s why we celebrate. I love this song because it puts into words the very reason for our celebrations at Christmastime:

“It’s about the cross, it’s about my sin; it’s about how Jesus came to be born once so that we could be born again. It’s about the stone that was rolled away so that you and I could have real life someday.”

I hope you are encouraged as you listen to this, and as we worship our risen King this Christmas!
