Christmas

Christmas! A fresh beginning for mankind

The precious breath to start anew

An excursion to redeem

To find and liberate the mislaid.

 

A reversal of time

Age and status jettisoned

The time to be like a child

Thinking, talking and loving as a toddler.

 

 The joy a manger kid brings

Godliness and innocence personified

The smile that disarms evil

A hug that is pure and true.

 

Sacrifice immeasurable

The gift to a depraved world

Benevolence undeserved

The love that ushered eternity.

 

Friendship unblemished

Taking nothing; giving everything

Sharing without strings

From a kind to a grateful heart.

 

Christmas is forgiveness exemplified  

A commitment to compassion

Serene presence of a soothing heart

The gift that gives ALWAYS.

 

 

                                                     In His grip,

‘Christ’ and his ‘Mas’ (2)

As outlaws and stiff-necked we travelled, leaving behind a trail of misdeeds

Head and mind clouded and bereft of knowledge; the greatest noise we made

Misconduct enjoyed a good presence, creating casualties everywhere

Wickedness and mischief brazen and bold, wrapped with ribbons were spread

Obstinacy and pride struggled for dominance; hardened hearts dug into trenches

And traffic was heightened down the wrong road.

 

Blindfolded by self we trudged along

Hauling with affliction our luggage of unrighteousness

Wobbled as we went with tired legs weakened without end

Leaning forward, saddled with burden felt but unseen

Mouth agape, everything was said yet no one heard us

Shoulders dropped with pain; and arms went up in surrender.

 

Wallowing in heat; a collective cry echoed for intervention

The Almighty angered by an unruly people, pondered in his mercy seat

Shifting ground to behold his creation with compassion; opting to ‘give’

He relinquished all he had; gave the ‘only one’ for the sake of humanity

Settled the ransom to enthrone eternity; a life that run through time

A peaceful continuity after earth’s turbulent sojourn.

 

Christ was born to pay the price; burden of an unrighteous humanity to bear

Flawless and without transgression, yet made blameworthy

Stood in the gap; despised, docked and persecuted for our sin

The wreath of thorns; the reddened marks from whips

Nails pierced through the tissue of love; the yoke of the cross

Wounded, bruised and chastised; atonement for our wrong.

 

Victory over sin and death; with his stripes came healing

Reconciled back to our maker; fresh and new again

Guilt as scarlet washed away; like snow the white is felt

The iron grip of iniquity broken; freedom return home

Hope was reborn; eternity is within eyesight

Salvation bought with a price we celebrate.

‘Christ’ and his ‘Mas’ (1)

CHRISTMAS  is neither a time nor season;

it’s about hope reborn.

A lifeline from God;

to help us regain our childlike innocence,

through fellowship with His son Jesus Christ.

As we celebrate this glorious intervention,

we wish you peace and joy in the spirit of –

‘CHRIST’ and his ‘MAS’ (mission for atonement and salvation).  

 

 

From all of us at Life Seeds,
