What Is It All About?

A couple in our church sang a song I had never heard this morning. It was a wonderful reminder of what this Christmas time that we celebrate is all about. It's easy enough to get caught up in the season and forget the complete picture. Don't get me wrong I love all the tradition and decorations and shopping just as much as the next gal but I never want to  forget or take for granted what this is all about. The first lines brought me in - it's not just about the manger, the angels and the "magic" of that day...

IT'S ABOUT THE CROSS


It's not just about the manger
Where the baby lay
It's not all about the angels
Who sang for him that day

It's not just about the shepherds
Or the bright and shining star
It's not all about the wise men
Who traveled from afar

Chorus:
It's about the cross
It's about my sin
It's about how Jesus came to be born once
So that we could be born again

It's about the stone
That was rolled away
So that you and I could have real life someday

It's about the cross
It's about the cross 

It's not just about the good things
In this life I've done
It's not just about the treasures
Or the trophies that I've won
It's not about the righteousness
That I find within
It's all about the precious blood
That saved me from my sin

The beginning of the story is wonderful and great
But it's the ending that can save you and that's why we celebrate!

It's about the cross
It's about my sin
It's about how Jesus came to be born once
So that we could be born again

It's about God's love
Nailed to a tree
It's about every drop of blood that flowed from Him
when it should have been me

It's about the stone
That was rolled away
So that you and I could have real life someday
So that you and I could have real life someday

It's about the cross
It's about the cross

If you would like to hear it with music I found this on YouTube.

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and that your are enjoying your time heading into December and the Christmas season! 

Merry December,
Sarah
