Life to life!

How vast and varied are the accounts of Jesus and the beginning of His life.  We have several records of it in The Bible.  Hollywood has many accounts of it.  There are even complete denominations based on it.  The reality of Jesus is irrefutable, but the ways that each of us come to know Him are without number!

Do you hear what I hear?
Do you know what I know?
It is up to The Holy Spirit
how He will bestow!
A tiny, little manger scene
upon the TV set--
the very first impression of
this "Jesus" I would get!

Some sing of Him at Christmas
with family all around...
Some hear of Him at Easter,
as He is Heaven-bound...
others only hear His Name
with anger or frustration...
the greatest way of all, though,
is to know Him in relation!

However the account is in

your life, it will account!
For you must know Him as your Savior!
Meet Him at the fount!
Ask Him to be your Lord and Savior,
bend to Him the knee;
the greatest of relationship
then, surely, you will see!

The Manger is only the beginning.  The story is far more than mere 'story,' it is a way of life.  The ONLY Way that leads to eternal life in Heaven.  For Jesus Himself says to us "You must be born again!" 

What better time to make such a commitment than at His birthday?!
