My Chistmas Carol for Today - It's About the Cross

Christmas is NOT about the presents. Christmas is NOT about the tree. Christmas is NOT about the decorations. Christmas is NOT about the cookies. Christmas is NOT about a lot of the things we so easily become distracted by . . . Christmas IS about the Cross. It IS about God's love! It is the reason Jesus came to be born as a baby. He came so we can have new life! 

Look at the lyrics . . . 

It's not just about the manger Where the baby lay It's not all about the angels Who sang for him that day It's not just about the shepherds Or the bright and shining star It's not all about the wisemen Who traveled from afar

It's about the cross It's about my sin It's about how Jesus came to be born once So that we could be born again 
It's about the stone That was rolled away
So that you and I could have real life someday 
It's about the cross It's about the cross

It's not just about the presents Underneath the tree It's not all about the feeling That the season brings to me 
It's not just about coming home To be with those you love It's not all about the beauty In the snow I'm dreaming ofIt's about the cross It's about my sin It's about how Jesus came to be born once So that we could be born again It's about the stone That was rolled away
So that you and I could have real life someday 
It's about the cross It's about the cross

The beginning of the story is wonderful and great But it's the ending that can save you and that's why we celebrate

It's about the cross It's about my sin It's about how Jesus came to be born once So that we could be born again 
It's about God's love Nailed to a tree It's about every drop of blood that flowed from Him when it should have been meIt's about the stone That was rolled away So that you and I could have real life someday So that you and I could have real life someday It's about the cross It's about the cross
