Sunday Sustennance

During this Christmas season, I wanted to share some of my favorite Christmas songs with you. I, of course, love all the traditional Christmas carols such as Away in a Manger, Silent Night, What Child is This, etc. But the song I have picked to share today is a newer song that makes me think every time I hear it.

"Mary, Did you Know?"

Mary, did you know that your baby boy will one day walk on water?
Mary, did you know that your baby boy will save our sons and daughters?
Did you know that your baby boy has come to make you new?
This child that you've delivered, will soon deliver you.

Mary, did you know that your baby boy will give sight to a blind man?
Mary, did you know that your baby boy will calm a storm with his hand?
Did you know that your baby boy has walked where angels trod?
And when you kiss your little baby, you have kissed the face of God.

The blind will see, the deaf will hear and the dead will live again.
The lame will leap, the dumb will speak, the praises of the lamb.

Mary, did you know that your baby boy is Lord of all creation?
Mary, did you know that your baby boy will one day rule the nations?
Did you know that your baby boy is heaven's perfect Lamb?
This sleeping child you're holding is the great I am.


I find myself wondering, how much did she really know? I mean, she knew that she was carrying Jesus, but I don't know if was able to realize the full impact of what that meant to her and to the rest of humankind. And what a responsibility to raise and take care of Jesus!

Another thing that I always think about when I hear this song is how much do I have that I don't realize? I have Jesus in my heart and life and have complete and total access to Him everyday. But yet, do I take advantage of it? Do I talk with Him, and let Him guide my every thought, action, word, etc.? I have the GREAT I AM, the Lord of all creation as MY GOD - but do I live like it?

I hope as you go through the Christmas season, you will take a minute to think about what Christmas means - Christ came into the world as a baby to bring salvation to all that would believe!
