What if Christ was not born,
Then there would be no Christ
To celebrate Christmas.
What if Jesus did not live among the people,
Then they would not know
Who the Master Carpenter is.
What if Christ did not call the disciples,
Then there would be no fishers of men
Who would preach the Good News to the lost and weary.
What if Jesus did not die on the cross,
Then our sins will forever stain our lives,
And we shall carry the burden of our transgressions.
What if Christ did not resurrect on the third day,
Then all the promise of an eternal life
Is but a far cry from the truth that is to be told.
But no, all these,
The birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus
Are all true.
By His blood and grace,
We are offered His salvation from our sins,
If we only receive Him as our personal Lord and Savior.
What if you pray right now,
And ask Jesus to be your Master and Savior?
Wouldn’t that make your celebration of Lent more meaningful?
