“‘Twas mercy filled the throne,
And wrath stood silent by,
When Christ on the kind errand came
To sinners doomed to die.”

Rejoice, ye who feel that ye are lost; your Saviour comes to seek and save you. Be of good cheer ye who are in prison, for be comes to set you free. Ye who are famished and ready to die, rejoice that he has consecrated for you a Bethlehem, a house of bread, and he has come to be the bread of life to your souls. Rejoice, O sinners, everywhere for the restorer of the castaways, the Saviour of the fallen is born. Join in the joy, ye saints, for he is the preserver of the saved ones, delivering them from innumerable perils, and he is the sure prefecter of such as he preserves. Jesus is no partial Saviour, beginning a work and not concluding it; but, restoring and upholding, he also prefects and presents the saved ones without spot or wrinkle, or any such thing before his Father’s throne. Rejoice aloud all ye people, let your hills and valleys ring with joy, for a Saviour who is mighty to save is born among you. – Charles Spurgeon, Joy Born at Bethlehem sermon excerpt. December 24th, 1871.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

I think it’s quite ironic that I had never heard that Bethlehem means “city of bread” until my preacher mentioned it tonight, and now I read this post that states, “rejoice that he has consecrated for you a Bethlehem, a house of bread, and he has come to be the bread of life to your souls.” Jesus is indeed our Daily Bread, our Bread of Life. Ironic isn’t really the right word, more like “divine appointment,” or if that sounds “too spiritual,” maybe it’s just a “God thing.” Blessings to you all and I hope you had a very blessed merry Christmas.
