...what a name,
For the Son of god, who came,
Ruined sinners to reclaim...
Guilty, vile, and helpless me,
Spotless lamb of god was he.
Full atonement, can it be?
Roughly two thousand years ago, a baby boy was born.
Even as a child, he spoke authoritatively about the ways of God.
Many people have sought to know this man and to understand what he taught.
He taught a standard of ethic that no man could live up to, except he himself did.
After he was executed for his teachings, he could not stay dead, but conquered death.
The man-God, who is Yeshua, Jesus, the majestic creator, is worthy to be worshipped.
That he became a man is what we celebrate at Christmas, but it should be celebrated daily. The fact that God became a man and conquered the curse of death on our behalf has in every way changed my life for now and forever. My gratitude can never be fully expressed, as it is eternal.
Hallelujah! What a savior!
