Day 18, we are getting down to the wire and close to Christmas! Certainly can't wait to read the next few songs in the next few days. When A Child is Born is a Carol that I don't think I've herd before until now.
Isaiah 9 simply says and backs up the Christmas Carol why this child is born into this world of curuption at times.
6 For a child is born to us,
a son is given to us.
The government will rest on his shoulders.
And he will be called:
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
…new hope, new life. Many things come to pass with the birth of a new child.
For a season, everyone, forgets their own weariness and own problems.
This tiny creature will change people’s lives…forever.
There is nothing like the announcement of a new baby to bring excitement in a family. As the song says, “…new hope, new life. Many things come to pass with the birth of a new child. For a season, everyone forgets their own weariness and problems. This tiny creature will change people’s lives…forever.”
Expectant mothers gain a lot of attention, as friends and family are typically very intent on being involved in the entire process of pregnancy up until the very end. When the moment finally occurs, there is nothing like the sound of a newborn baby’s cry to validate the life that has been growing and developing over the past nine months, and create such overwhelming joy.
The same excitement that comes from physical birth also occurs when we experience spiritual birth in that moment when we ask Christ to become our personal Savior and Lord of our lives. In fact, many people now celebrate both their physical and spiritual birthdays because they understand the day Christ came into their life is just as important as the day they came into being.
Imagine the joy that was evident at Christ’s birth since His physical birth would ultimately change mankind forever. We can have spiritual rebirth because of His physical birth. John 10:10 says, “One…came…that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” We have a new life all because of one child: Jesus. As you reflect on this Christmas season, be thankful for what God did by sending His only Son so that we can have new life. Be thankful for that holy night when a child was born so that we could be born again.
What led you to your spiritual birth?
What does new life in Christ mean to you?
knowing, hearing about God, attended church and other events. Being willing and wanting Jesus part of my life and means being in His kingdom, part ofthe family of God. Being able to go to heaven and not suffer, saved by grace etc.
I hadn't heard this song before. It's interesting for sure and tells about the joy and hope that a child brings. Cool stuff.
Q: What led you to your spiritual birth?
A: My mom actually led me to the Lord after I asked her questions about heaven, sin and punishment. I learned a few things in Sunday School and knew that I didn't deserve heaven. Only Jesus could save me and let me in. I knew I wasn't going to make it on my own.
Q:What does new life in Christ mean to you?
A: New life I guess means redemption. No condemnation. No judgement. I can plead "not guilty" before a righteous God because the blood of Jesus covers it and makes me pure. AMEN HALLELUJAH!
