“Then the angel said to her, ‘Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.’”
Have you been to Jesus for the cleansing power this Christmas season? Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb? I tried my hand at poetry, I thought I would try to rewrite, “Mary Had a Little Lamb.” Here’s what I wrote:
Mary had a little Lamb.
His fleece was white as snow.
Son of God from Heaven above, for sinners here below.
Mary’s Son, Eternal God, He, the Great I AM
With wool so white on Christmas night became a little Lamb.
Mary had a little Lamb. His fleece was white as snow.
That spotless Lamb was crucified to pay the debt I owe.
Oh, spotless Lamb, with wool so white, thy crimson blood, I know,
can take away my crimson sin and wash me white as snow.
I thank God for Mary’s little Lamb that died upon that cross. But not only was this Lamb a special Lamb, a slain Lamb, and a saving Lamb, Mary’s Lamb is to be a shared Lamb. That’s why when we come to the Lord’s table, we have a celebration. We feed on the Lamb.
Pick one activity to do on your own or with your loved ones to feed on the Lamb as you prepare for Christmas Day.
