“You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people's feet."--Matthew 5:13

The True Meaning of Christmas

God came down to earth and was incarnated,
Taking the form of those whom He had created.

He was born to save His people from their sin.
Through Adam, death had been imputed to all men.

In our sin, we did not acknowledge Him.
In our weakness, our eyes had become dim.

Away from righteousness, humanity ran.
God despised the works of man.

In His humility, He was made low
So that, to the mercy seat, His people may go.

He took my sin and shame.
Now, in the eyes of God, I am without blame.
