Joy of Christmas: Day Seventeen

Christmas is so much more than presents, trees, lights, and childhood.

We would all agree that Christmas is about Christ. Yet, we only focus our study on a small part of who Christ is during this Christmas season. We only talk about mangers, starts, angels, and a baby. He is so much more than that! We sing about and talk about the joy that comes with the Christmas story. But why is it so joyful that Christ was born?

Inspired by the
Jesse Tree Advent book**, I am going to do a 25-Day series focusing on
finding joy in Christ! Click here for more info.

Joy of Christmas: Day Seventeen

The Suffering Servant

BORN TO DIE
written by Bebo Norman & Jason Ingram

And all fell silent For the cry of an infant
the voice of God Was dividing history
For those with eyes to see
the Son would shine From earth that night
Chorus Bridge:
To break the chains Of guilt and sin
To find us here To pull us in
So we can join in Heaven’s song
And with one voice around the throne

All the Angels filled the sky
And I can’t help but wonder why
Why this King would choose to be
Be a baby born for me
Be a baby born…Be a baby born to die


The joy of Christmas is that Christ came to die - so that we may have eternal life.
The HEART of Christmas gives us joy:
John 3:16
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
