The Christmas Celebration

  • The Christmas Celebration 

by Rebecca Yeary

The celebration of our Savior’s nativity

Recalls our deliverance from captivity.

Christ humbled Himself and came to earth

On the night when God-incarnate was birthed.

A promise had been made since Adam and Eve’s day

That a way would be offered, and that Christ would pay.

Many times Satan tried to prevent our liberation,

Including the mass-murder at Herod’s proclamation.

An unblemished scapegoat of innocence was required;

For blood must be shed if remission of sin was desired.

Our Savior refused to summon the angels to aid;

By overpowering love was His sacrifice made.

Unlike Abraham’s, the Father’s hand was not stayed;

Wrath was appeased and upon His Son sin was laid.

The gift of salvation is now freely bestowed

To those who confess and repent of their load.

In the mist of the games, food, and recreation,

In the frenzied shopping, and much conversation,

Do not overlook the purpose of the celebration,

To remember and commemorate our emancipation.
