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



Jesus to me…

My sins for His righteousness

This poem is inspired by this blog post:

They say You were a great teacher

Who taught what He practiced

A man with real passion

To those who would listen.


They say You were a great physician

Who healed the sick and bed ridden

Without any charge or fee for Your touch

You took away all their pain.


Yet some say You were the greatest prophet

Who heard and taught the Word of God

You turned the harlot hearts to their God

That they may live according to the law.


But to me, Jesus You are more

What they didn’t realise was

That You were the Word of God

Who took the requirements of the law

And took the punishment for my sin it demand


An innocent life exchanged for my shame

Took upon Yourself all of my pain

Yes, You didn’t escape the cross

But carried it on Your shoulders

To Calvary where You gave Your life

That I may live with You forever


No one died for You

But You gave Yours for free to everyone

To those who would accept the gift of love

No sin or condemnation freedom forever


Jesus, You won the grave 3 days after

For You are God, the champion of heaven

Lord of the universe, rebuking the storm

Giving me peace and assurance of grace

For now and the life to come!
