- Do you worship the babe in the manger
But reject the Christ of the cross?
Your redemption comes not by the manger
But the death of Christ on the cross.
- If you worship the babe in the manger
But ignore the blood of God’s Son
To you Christ is only a stranger
Till you trust the work He has done.
- Will you look past the babe in the manger
Will you look to Calvary
Oh my friend can you not see the danger
Of a lost eternity?
- The Babe in the manger was God’s only Son
Who came to the world to die
The Babe in the manger could never have done
The work of His God on High.
The Babe left the manger and went to the cross
To Pay the wages of sin
Your way of forgiveness is not by the Babe,
But the Christ Who died for your sin.
(If you know who the credit goes to for the song above, please let me know. I cannot find who wrote it.)
My friend, if you have not looked past the babe of the manger to Calvary, then your soul is in danger. This Christmas, won’t you consider the real reason for this season? Jesus Christ was born to die to pay the penalty for your sins and mine. Hallelujah, He rose again on the third day so that we could know a living Savior and dwell in heaven with Him some day. This is the best Christmas gift!
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 3:23)
