Word For It. . .

2Chronicles7:14-“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

Christmas Eve by Tom Hargay

Posted by wordforit on December 24, 2007

A deep royal blue toned the sky on that night

Like a canopy studded with diamonds of light

But what from the earth seemed a strange regal sky

Was a heavenly carpet for angels on high

How they watched through the night

standing row upon row

And gazed down in awe at the chilled earth below

And the earth that night listened as

hymns of God’s love

Rained softly, rained sweetly from heaven above

They sang of God’s mercy, they sang of God’s worth

And from heaven they worshiped

The Christ child on earth.

Mary Had THE Little Lamb

Posted by wordforit on December 24, 2007

Mary had the little Lamb, who lived before His birth;
Self-existent Son of God, from Heaven He came to Earth. (Micah 5:2)

Mary had the little Lamb; see Him in yonder stall-
Virgin-born Son of God, to save man from the Fall. (Isaiah 7:14)

Mary had the little Lamb, obedient Son of God;
Everywhere the Father led, His feet were sure to trod. (John 6:38)

Mary had the little Lamb, crucified on the tree
The rejected Son of God, He died to set men free. (1 Peter 1:18)

Mary had the little Lamb-men placed Him in the grave,
Thinking they were done with Him; to death He was no slave! (Matthew 28:6)

Mary had the little Lamb, ascended now is He;
All work on Earth is ended, our Advocate to be. (Hebrews 4:14-16)

Mary had the little Lamb-mystery to behold!
From the Lamb of Calvary, a Lion will unfold. (Revelation 5: 5-6)

When the Day Star comes again, of this be very sure:
It won’t be Lamb-like silence, but with the Lion’s roar. (Psalm 2:12; Revelation 19:11-16)

Our Greatest Need

Posted by wordforit on December 23, 2007

If our greatest need had been information,

God would have sent us an educator;

If our greatest need had been technology,

God would have sent us a scientist;

If our greatest need had been money,

God would have sent us an economist;

If our greatest need had been pleasure,

God would have sent us an entertainer;

But our greatest need was forgiveness, so

God sent us a Savior.

*************************

Amen.
