DAY 8 Mighty Redeemer

DAY 8 Mighty Redeemer

11 For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, 12 training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, 13 waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, 14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works. (Titus 2:11-14)1

Over 2,000 years ago, a child was born.  God planned from the foundation of the world that this child should be born, not by the will of man but by his purpose and plan.  His birth was foretold by prophets hundreds of years before.  He did not remain a child though but rather grew to manhood. He demonstrated in word and deed that he is the holy Son of God.  He died among thieves on a cross.  He was buried in a borrowed tomb, but the grave could not hold him.  He arose from the dead and now is seated at the right hand of the Father as our Mighty Redeemer.

 

CHILD IN THE MANGER

Child in the manger, infant of Mary
Outcast and stranger, Lord of us all
Child who inherits all our transgressions
All our demerits upon Him fall

Once the most holy Child of salvation
Gently and lowly lived low
Now as our glorious Mighty Redeemer
See Him victorious over each foe

Prophets foretold Him, infant of wonder
Angels behold Him on His throne
Worthy our Savior of all their praises
Happy forever are His own
Worthy our Savior of all their praises
Happy forever are His own
