Another Good Christmas Scripture

I have long felt that, besides the usual ones, there is another good Christmas Scripture which could be preached upon and sung during the Holiday Season. So I decided to write it into a song a few years ago. I would love it if there are any pastors reading this who would create a sermon out of the scripture and send it to me.

 

This is what Christmas is all about, is it not—that when the time was right, God sent his Son to set his plan of salvation into motion, to set us free from sin, darkness, and the power of the devil? And, of course, Easter completes Christmas.

 

Please put up with my amateurish rendition and consider the words of this scripture.

 

In The Fullness of Time

 

“Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia, Al—le—lu-i-a.

 

In the Fullness of Time, God has sent forth his Son whom the prophets foretold, long-awaited One.

 

For we were bound deep in our sin, darkness had reigned without and within.

We needed light to lead the way, to set us free, to rule our hearts alway.

 

“Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia, Al–le–u-i-a.

 

In the Fullness of Time, God has sent forth his Son whom the prophets foretold, long-awaited One.

 

God took on flesh, born as a man, born to fulfill the heavenly plan.

Jesus atoned for all our sins; we can be free and pure and whole within.”

 

Alleluia, Alleluia.

I hope you all have a joy-filled Christmas and a blessed New Year.

      Thank you! I hadn’t heard this scripture used much in the context of Christmas, but to me it seems to express the very essence of Christmas. “God has sent forth his Son!”
