Best Story Ever

…a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. (Luke 2:11)

I prayed that the Lord would give me fresh inspiration as I shared the sacred love story of Christmas.

Opening up my Bible, I read through Luke 1 and 2: that familiar story of the birth of Christ. The words leapt off the page that and filled my heart with awe all over again.

Most of us have heard the Christmas story a thousand times. There’s an old saying that familiarity breeds contempt. Surely we must guard against this! May we never become bored of the miraculous story of Christmas! 

Are you ready to experience a fresh rhyming twist on Luke 1:26-56 and Luke 2:1-20?

Then open your mind and ready your heart for the: Best Story Ever!

A Christmas Rap (When Sacred Love Came Down)

A long time ago an angel told a girl that she would have a baby and He would save the world.

Now Mary was confused ‘cause she hadn’t known a man, but her innocence was a part of God’s plan.

The angel said the Spirit of the Lord would make it happen, “He’ll be the Son of God. He will be a man of action!”

“May it be as you have said, I’m a servant of the Lord.

Blessed among women! I can’t wait ‘til he is born!” 

So nine months later on the night the babe would come a twinkle in the sky brought attention to God’s Son

The shepherds, they were chillin’ in the fields with their sheep. When the Angel of the Lord came and stirred them from their sleep.

“Do not be afraid! I bring good and joyful news That will be for every man, this will be a sign to you.

For unto you is born, in the town of David. The Christ! The Messiah! And He will be your Saviour!”

“Now listen, there is more – and you might find it stranger

You will find this baby, lying in a manger.”

Then suddenly the sky was filled with angels singin’ praise
Joyful songs to celebrate the One who came to save 

The shepherds said, “No way! Let’s go and check it out!” They ran to see the babe that the angels sang about
They came upon the child then ran to spread the word. And people were amazed at the story that they heard

O what a holy night, when sacred Love came down. To wear a suit of skin, to wear a thorny crown.

For God so loved the world that He sent His only Son. To reconcile hearts. It is finished! It is done!

Dear Lord, You are so awesome! Thank You for loving us and for sending Your only Son, Jesus, to reconcile my heart. Surely, Your grace is amazing.
