Born in the Shadow of the Cross

Tonight the World pauses to celebrate. Some will celebrate family, some will celebrate personal lusts, some will celebrate very little. By God's grace, it seems, that no matter what people are meaning to celebrate they will be doing so while bathed in songs that speak of the birth of our Lord. From instrumentals, to songs praising God with "hallelujah."

Tonight believers pause to celebrate the coming of the Lord the World rejected. While the world ignores the truth of the future it faces we who have read and believed the Bible know that the Lord Jesus did not ignore the future He faced when He came here. He willingly came to do the will of the Father.

He was born into this world in the shadow of the Cross. Born to die, so that we might live. Tonight give praise to God who loved the world in this way: that He gave His only begotten Son so that whosoever shall believe might have eternal life.
