๐ŸŽ„๐Ÿ‘‘๐ŸŽถ What Child Is This? #4

โ€œO come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalmsโ€ (Psalm 95:1,2).

The final verse of the classic Christmas carol highlights todayโ€™s Scripture.

โ€œThis, this is Christ the King,
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing:
Haste, haste to bring Him laud,
The Babe, the Son of Mary.โ€

As the shepherds and angels gathered around Baby Jesusโ€™ manger, we can only wonder what immense joy filled their hearts. In that world of oldโ€”plagued by the same basic problems of our modern worldโ€”He was a Beacon in the dark and a Solace in the misery. They undoubtedly sang right in the midst of all those farm animals! They were so thrilled to see God working in their presence. They were now standing before His baby crib!

Sinners today are greatly encouragedโ€”yea, urgedโ€”to come by faith to Godโ€™s Son, Jesus Christ, right this moment. They are not to come by faith to His crib, for He is no longer a Baby. Rather, they are to come by faith to His cross, where He gave up that life for us! โ€œBut God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for usโ€ (Romans 5:8). What we need to do is rely exclusively on Jesus Christโ€™s finished crosswork, His shed sinless blood and His resurrection, as sufficient payment for our sins.

As with Jesusโ€™ birth, for those who do not want to see anything, they do not see anything. Those who see are people who want to see. It has nothing to do with God hiding anything from anyone. What did Jesus tell the Jews? โ€œIf any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myselfโ€ (John 7:17).

Although Jesus Christ is not physically here today, we can still haste to bring Him laud. We can praise Him highly in a public context. First, we can believe on Him and His finished crosswork. Then, we can tell others how they too can be saved through Calvary! source
