I heard a song recently that for some reason I hadn’t heard before. (Which surprised me since it is 20 years old!) It is called “Mystery” And the first verse goes as follows:
“A child is born on Christmas Day,
Born to save the world
But long before the world began
He knew His death was sure.”
Even more incredible to me than the virgin birth itself is the fact that God created us in the first place- knowing that we would sin and that he would give His son to die in our place.
Questions for further thought:
1. What is your favorite Christmas song?
2. Do the words hold important meaning to you?
Challenge: Listen to one of your favorite Christmas songs; really listen to the words and let them soak in this Christmas season.
