Mary, Did You Know?
Posted by Vogeler on November 14, 2008
I am a Christmas fanatic. I watch Christmas movies all year round. I get annoyed looks from my wife and coworkers because I listen to Christmas music in July. I LOVE Christmas.
Now that we’re getting close, I feel that it’s safe (er) for me to break out the Christmas tunes without fear of repercussion. I was listening to one of my favorites, “Mary Did You Know?” today, when the lyrics of the song hit me so hard my eyes welled up with tears and my knees nearly buckled.
The lines that hit me so hard were,
Did you know that you your baby boy has come to make you new?
This child that you’ve delivered will soon deliver you!
The blind will see, the deaf will hear, the dead will live again!
The lame will leap, the dumb will speak
The praises of the Lamb!
Did you know that your baby boy was Heaven’s perfect Lamb?
The sleeping child you’re holding is the great “I Am”!
If you haven’t taken time to listen to that song in a while (if ever), I greatly encourage you to go someplace quiet and prayerfully listen. I believe it will help to reinforce the reality of the divinity and humanity of Jesus Christ, and how much of a sacrifice He made to bring us to Himself.
