A Hymn for The Lord's Day

This time of year, many people may wonder about the significance of Chritmas. Why would a culture go to such extremes to celebrate the coming of a round elderly gentleman in a red suit? I would ask, "Why would we?".
I would like you to know the real significance of Christmas. The meaning is in the very name: Christ mass. The celebration is Christ.
But why is He important? Because He is God. He came from Heaven to make the one sacrifice for our sins that would be enough to pay the penalty for our sins. Unless that sacrifice was made, we would spend eternity in Hell after our life here on earth is over.
Maybe you don't believe in spiritual things. Maybe you believe there is no life after death. Many have been in the same state of unbelief. But the subject warrents very serious thought. Many have spent their lives searching for the meaning of life.

The hymn for today is not a Christmas hymn, but it has been on my heart. It is from my heart to you.


No One Ever Cared for Me Like Jesus

Charles F. Weigle 1871-1966


I would love to tell you what I think of Jesus
Since I found in Him a Friend so strong and true;
I would tell you how He changed my life completely-
He did something that no other friend could do.

No on ever cared for me like Jesus,
There's no other friend so kind as He;
No one else could take the sin and darkness from me-
O how much He cared for me.

All my life was full of sin when Jesus found me,
All my heart was full of misery and woe;
Jesus placed His strong and loving arms around me,
And He led me in the way I ought to go.

No one ever cared for me like Jesus,
There's no ther friend so kind as He;
No one else could take the sin and darkness from me-
O how much He cared for me.

Ev'ry day He comes to me with new assurance,
More and more I understand His words of love;
But I'll never know just why He came to save me,
Till some day I see His blessed face above.

No one ever cared for me like Jesus,
There's no other friend so kind as He;
No one else could take the sin and darkness from me-
O how much He cared for me.


You can become a follower of Christ and recieve pardon for your sins.
"But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness." (Romans 4:5)
