This Baby

baby-jesus-in-manger

They say that having a baby will change your life completely, and every parent knows that is true.  You give your whole self away to your child and you never get yourself back.  Your time is no longer your own – your days are filled with feedings and soccer games, and waiting up for them to come home.  Your money is not yours anymore – who ever imagined someone so tiny would need so much stuff?  And then they go to college! Your priorities are different, your goals are reshaped, and your entire identity is redefined.  And you wouldn’t have it any other way.

There is a baby who will change your life in far greater ways.  This baby will give your life direction and purpose.  This baby will bring you peace in the midst of a storm.  He will comfort you when you are weary and broken.  He will lift you up when you fall. This baby will bring you immeasurable joy.  He can wash away the stain of guilt and shame and make you new.  This baby brings hope where all hope is faded.  He brings light into the darkest night.  This baby brings healing of body and mind and heart. This baby will change the way you think and the way you live.  He will transform your heart and cause you to love in ways you never expected.  And if all that wasn’t enough, this baby will change your life forever and ever.

This baby left the glory of heaven to save the entire human race.  He brought peace between God and man.  He broke the chains of sin.  He erased the curse of death.  This baby took on your sin and mine; He bore the punishment that you and I rightly deserved.  He surrendered His body to the cross and the grave.  He did it all so that you and I could have life – full and abundant and eternal.  He gave Himself away so that you could get your self back.  This baby – the Lord Jesus Christ – changes everything.
