Do You See?

 Do you see a virgin, close to bearing Child?
Her Baby is God!
In the stable, Mary gives birth.
No midwife attends.
Joseph is there—her fiancé,
The godly man who guarded her in purity for this hour.

Do you see the Baby?
The Perfect One is born, just like every baby,
But not like any before or since.
God made flesh,
Dwelling with us.
Emmanuel in a manger.

Do you see the light so terrible
The shepherds tremble?
An angel proclaims the Savior:
The Shepherd of souls
Announced to shepherds of sheep.

Do you see many angels together, praising God?
“Glory to God in the highest.”
Curious shepherds leave their flock
To worship The Good Shepherd, their Messiah.

Do you see the shepherds kneeling,
Worshiping newborn Baby,
And afterwards, striding through Bethlehem announcing
The Savior in swaddling clothes,
Telling about angels and the Messiah?
They had seen Him!

Do you see the Star?
There shall come a Star out of Jacob,
And a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel. (Numbers 24:17)
The wise men traveled many miles
To see the King of the Jews.

Do you see angry King Herod
Striving to compose himself as he worries
About the King of kings he doesn’t know?
Can you see him call his priests and scribes
To find out where the Christ Child was born?

Do you see the joy on wise men’s faces
As they view the Star again?
It moves and hovers
Over the house where the Savior lives.

Do you see the wise men worshipping the Holy Child
With treasures: gold, perfume, and myrrh?

Do you see how God protected His Child
Until He died for sins
On the cross?

Do you see how much God loves you?
The incarnation is for you.
Jesus is for you.
The Savior is for you.
Salvation is for you.

And the Word was made flesh,
And dwelt among us,
(And we beheld his glory,
The glory as of the only begotten of the Father,)
Full of grace and truth. (John 1:14)

To open their eyes . . .
That they may receive forgiveness of sins,
And inheritance among them which are sanctified
By faith that is in (Jesus). (from Acts 26:18b)

Do you see?
For unto you is born this day
in the city of David a Savior,
which is Christ the Lord. (Luke 2:11)

Have you really seen Jesus?
Have you put your faith in Him?

I'm so thankful for Jesus and what He went through to supply eternal life for all who would just receive Him. Thank you for a beautiful post about the most beautiful story ever told! Happy Christmas Lou Ann!
