Re: The Babe in the Manger?
For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. (Isa 9:6)
1) Do you worship the babe in the manger But reject the Christ of the cross? Your redemption comes not by the manger But the death of Christ on the cross. 2) If you worship the babe in the manger But ignore the blood of God's Son To you Christ is only a stranger 'Til you trust the work He has done. 3) Will you look past the babe in the manger? Will you look to Calvary Oh my friend can you not see the danger Of a lost eternity? Chorus: The Babe in the manger was God's only Son Who came to the world to die The Babe in the manger could never have done The work of His God on high. The Babe left the manger and went to the cross To pay the wages of sin Your way of forgiveness is not by the babe But the Christ Who died for your sin.
Christ...made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Phil 2:7-11) (VW)
