Messiah ~ a poem from Isaiah 53

Our Christmas message, then, this year,
Is not a clean and cute and cheer-
ful story. It is dirty, deep:
A bloody Lamb saved hell-bound sheep.

So may your happiness have weight,
For blood and love met sin and hate.
And it was your Messiah’s death
That gave you now your Christmas breath.

May your happiness have great weight this year- weight rooted in and bearing fruit of God's magnificent love to send us his Son, Jesus!

I hope that you will click over to see the rest of this excellent poem from David Gunner Gunderson. It is wonderful!
