Do You Worship The Babe In The Manger, But Reject the Christ of the Cross?
Sometimes I have to ask myself the question, who do you worship? I love Christmas and I really want my grandchildren to know the real meaning of Christmas. But sometimes I have to look deep within my heart and realize that I often reject the Christ of the cross. Oh, I haven’t rejected Him as far as trusting Him as Savior and I hope you haven’t either.
But I do reject Him other ways.
My life may be so full of “things to do” that I reject spending time with Him and growing in His grace. May we be consumed with His love and want more of Him than anything else on our Christmas list.
Who are you worshiping?
Read the words of the beautiful and thought provoking song:
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
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.
– W. S. and Mildred Dillon
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.
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)
