The Greatest Story Ever Told – A Poem

It started not with myth or legend

No princess, prince, knight or dragon

There was no witch nor storm to fear

But came upon a midnight clear

*

It was foretold years ago

In ancient books, the story goes

A people separate from their Maker

Lost in life’s endless crater

*

They pulled and tugged and scratched and clawed

But there was no end for they were flawed

What did they need to be set free?

Brains, talent, strength indeed?

*

They looked to warriors in their might

Their savior though, nowhere in sight

What man would come, what king to save?

No man, no king, a lowly babe

*

Born not to riches or earthly glory

For that would be no great story

Instead he came poor and plain

GodMan here, Jesus his name

*

A life righteous did he live

Into temptation he did not give

But perfect, spotless lamb and lion

Finally a Savior to rely on

*

His life uneasy, hard, and cruel

Mocked beaten called a fool

To save his people, the ultimate cost

He gave himself to die on the cross

*

Weeping, wailing, his death mourned

Lasted till that glorious morn

With death, sin, separation no more

He rose our Savior and our Lord

*

The greatest story some have not heard

Of Jesus Christ the Living Word

Not for some but all he gave

Let us recall this Christmas Day

In Christ’s Love,
Josh

    Josh wrote this for his blog today. I thought it was so good that I wanted to share it on ours as well. If you didn’t know, Josh has his own blog where he posts some really wonderful spiritual stuff. You can follow the link “Thirsting for God” on the right side of our blog page to access his blog.
    Anyways, I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
