Star of Bethelehem


 

He had known this all along

But tonight laying in a manger

Up in the sky was a displayed symbol

To remind Him of His purpose

He is the Saviour of the world

 

It stood clearer and brighter  

Than all the stars of the night

Its shape resembled of the figure

On which one day He was to die

 

As His little head lay on the hay

Tears filled His pure, innocent eyes

For in the quietness of this silent night

He saw the horror of Golgotha’s cry

 

This same star brought three visitors

With myrrh, frankincense and gold

Reminding Him of His sacrificial death

His Priesthood as the Prince of Peace

And His Kingship as the God incarnate

 

For us He was born

Laying His majesty aside

He nailed our sins to the cross

By His blood He ransomed us

And made us children of God.

My Lord and my God- JESUS!  

“The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us. We have seen His glory, the glory of the One and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.” – John.1:14

“13 When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, 14 having cancelled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross. 15 And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.” – Colossians.2:13-15

“9 After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. 10 When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. 11 On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshipped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.” – Matthew.2:9-11
