Born to Die

20121211-025056.jpg

Why do we celebrate Christmas? It’s not to get or give presents or to watch
football. Although that’s fun and exciting. Rather it’s a time to reflect
on Jesus’ birth and how and why He came to this earth. He came to die. Yes, Jesus was born to die.

Why? Because He was willing to be the ultimate sacrifice for sin and
satisfy God’s righteous judgment on mankind. Everybody is guilty of sin but
God loves you so much He gave His only Son, Jesus to die on a cross in your
place. Jesus never sinned one time on this earth because He was perfect.
Yet He was willing to die so that we might live with Him in Heaven forever.
Yes, Jesus died but He also arose from the dead three days after He died. He
defeated death and Hell. He did all of this for us.

All you have to do is believe or trust in Him and He’ll forgive you of all
your sins. If you’re thinking,” You don’t know what horrible things I have
done in my life?” No I don’t, but He does. Romans 10:13 tells us “For
whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

As we receive and give gifts this Christmas, let us all be reminded of the
greatest gift of all. Gods grace and forgiveness to save us.

Born to Die by Ron Hamilton is a song that shows how willing Jesus was on
the cross. Hope this song blesses you like it did me.

Born to Die
by Ron Hamilton

On the night Christ was born
Just before the break of morn,
As the stars in the sky were fading,
O’er the place where He lay,
Fell a shadow cold and gray
Of a cross that would humble a King.
Chorus
Born to die upon Calv’ry,
Jesus suffered my sin to forgive;
Born to die upon Calv’ry,
He was wounded that I might live.
Jesus knew when He came
He would suffer in shame,
He could feel ev’ry pain and sorrow.
But He left Paradise,
With His blood He paid the price –
My redemption to Jesus I owe.

Chorus
Born to die upon Calv’ry,
Jesus suffered my sin to forgive;
Born to die upon Calv’ry,
He was wounded that I might live.
From His throne Jesus came,Laid aside Heaven’s fame
In exchange for the cross of Calv’ry;
For my gain suffered loss,
For my sin He bore the cross –
He was wounded and I was set free.

Chorus
Born to die upon Calv’ry,
Jesus suffered my sin to forgive;
Born to die upon Calv’ry,
He was wounded that I might live.
Dearest Lord, evermore
May Thy cross I adore
As I follow the path to Calv’ry;
Of Thy death I partake,
My ambition I forsake –
All my will I surrender to Thee.

Chorus
Born to die upon Calv’ry,
Jesus suffered my sin to forgive;
Born to die upon Calv’ry,
He was wounded that I might live.

  1. What a sobering thought! It’s interesting to me that people can write songs like this to express such an important message.
