Really Simple

It's really simple: That Christmas Baby born in the manger- the one we celebrate on December 25- grew up. He is the perfect and holy Son of God sacrificed on the cross for the sins of mankind. Salvation and eternal life are available to all who choose to believe and follow. The simplicity of it all confounds the intelligent and wise, yet makes those familiar with their own brokenness thankful beyond words.

How easy it is to celebrate His birth yet forget about the accomplishment of his mission on earth. Yes, God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son. Whoever believes in Him will have eternal life and be free. Jesus came into the world because of His love for us to draw men to Him. The choice is ours. It's really simple.

Silent night, holy night!
Shepherds quake at the sight
Glories stream from heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia!
Christ, the Saviour is born
Christ, the Saviour is born

Silent night, holy night
Son of God, love's pure light
Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth.
