I didn’t write this song with Christmas in mind, but it certainly celebrates
the wonder and triumph of the incarnation, Gods blessed gift to us.
Jesus Came for the lost.
He Came to meet us in our loneliness and our need.
He Came to meet us at the end of our road after all of our efforts are spent,
and still we are in our failure. At the end of our goodness that can’t be
enough. At the end of our weakness and blindness and selfishness.
He Came to the place that he knew these things would lead us.
He Came to walk that road to its inevitable end, and having purchased the
cross with His sacrifice, wait for us there.
He Came so that we would find Him in His patience and kindness and
He Came to take us up and never let us go.
He came to lead us home.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that
whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.
For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to
save the world through Him”.
Oh that we would humble our hearts and give Him the welcome that He
desires. That we would love as He loves.
That the gift God gave on that Bethlehem morning would be the one we
receive and share and walk in.
The gift of a Life that has overcome death, a life that is eternal.
By His Grace and mighty power may it be so.
