Thoughts about Christmas

I love the song "Mercy Walked In" by Gordon Mote. This is what Christmas means to me; mercy.

I stood in the court room the judge turn my way
It looks like you're guilty now what do you say
I spoke up your honor I have no defense
But that's when mercy walked in

I stood there and wondered how could this be
That someone so guilty had just been set free
My chains were broken I felt born again
the moment that mercy walked in

 Mercy walked in and pleaded my case
Called to the stand God's saving grace
The blood was presented that covered my sin
Forgiven when mercy walked in


I Love this song! Jesus became our mercy when we did not deserve it. Despite our wickedness Jesus stepped in and freely gave his mercy to all of us.

To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus. To this end I also labor, striving according to His working which works in me mightily. Colossians 1:27-29
