I was shown this video this week and it really hit home for me.
I found it out on youtube so thought I would share it.
The true impact of the first Christmas…

I’m not generally the religious type but this was an excellent song that someone had given to me on a CD on my truck while I was at work. This is NOT mine and I refuse to take credit, I could not find this anywhere on YouTube so I decided to upload it. Enjoy 🙂
Lyrics: When it it comes to this season I am reminded of the past. Over 300 messianic prophesies came to pass, with the birth of a child, both god and man. Our deliverer of sin, born with a battle plan. Sin waged war in our lives since the day of our birth, but now the deliverer, our rescuer has come to break that curse. That which has separated the father on this earth is about to be defeated by our king and lord, oh Mary did you know.
Mary did you know, that your baby boy will one day walk on water.Mary did you know, that your baby boy will save our sons and daughters. Did you know, that your baby boy has come to make you new. This child that you delivered will soon deliver you.
The punishment that brought us peace was upon him and by his wounds we are healed. He made an appeal to the father, our judged by his death on our behalf. Satan never anticipating the aftermath. The chains are broken, the captives are set free. The oppressed to depress can lift their heads cause we are free indeed. Our redemption sealed by the blood through the sacrifice of the one. Born to die so that you and I can find the life he died for to ensure forever more the cure for death. Oh Mary did you know.
Mary did you know, that your baby boy will give sight to a blind man. Mary did you know that your baby boy will calm a storm with his hand. Did you know that your baby boy has walked where angels tried, and when you kiss your little baby you have kissed the face of God. Oh Mary did you know.
It is finished my debt is payed in full, can i ever fully grasp what it took to save their soul. But I will lift my head, and I will bare my cross, I have been sanctified by the blood so Satan can count his loss. The victory is mine by birthright, reborn in his name. Authority over evil because of the price that he payed. I see the heavens opened wide and seeded out the right hand of God. He’s the one and only son, the rescuer of the world. Seeding and glory and authority.
The blind will see, the deaf will hear, the dead will live again. The lame will leap, the dumb will speak, the pain that is his life. Did you know that your baby boy is heavens perfect lamb. Then sleep sweet child sleep. He is the perfect lamb. Oh Mary did you know.
All this is by ear so if some is incorrect my apologies ahead of time

In Romans 10 Paul lays out how salvation is open to all, Jew and Gentile. He writes:
“For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.” – Romans 10:4-5
What he is saying is now it is not about works or how closely to a “T” you follow the law. But that it is through God’s gift of grace through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. It is really that simple, and yet a hard step for some of us.
“That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” – Romans 10:9
Christ is the narrow gate (Matthew 7:13-14), through faith in Him you will be saved. It is the only “works” that God requires for eternal salvation.
