Real Christmas

Be still and know the freedom...
be quiet, know His voice;
In God above is liberty-
rejoice!  REJOICE!  REJOICE!!
So many are the parables,
so limited, the Truth;
so real is Almighty God
in glory, freedom, ruth!
But in the stillness know Him
and He will know you there.
None to fathom His attendance
unto each so rare!
He there awaits already,
will you go to that place?
It is the very perfect rest
from the constant race!
Yes, in Him, is that freedom
on which no thing depends.
He will contain it in that day
when everything else ends.
It is in the Blood He shed
applied unto the heart-
to know that precious freedom,
in Him, you must take part!

In Him you MUST take part...or you will be bound forever.
Jesus is so real and good and wonderful and kind and loving and...  and the poet can never run out of good things to say about Him, but unless you ask Him to be your Savior, they are only words.
Won't you invite Him into your heart today?  That's what Christmas really is.  That's what it is supposed to be!
