What CHILD Is This?

What Child is this --  the Infinite who became finite?  the Invisible made visible?  the Supernatural made manifest in the natural?

GOD the Son -- Creator; Son of Man -- Savior of sinners. What Child is this --  whom Isaiah prophesied as Wonderful Counselor, Mighty GOD, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace?   to whom the virgin Mary sang lullabies of praise? who was filled with the Holy SPIRIT of GOD? 

Immanuel -- GOD with us; Son of David -- King of the Jews. What Child is this --  from everlasting to everlasting, is with GOD?   who is the preeminent, unique, eternal Living Word?   whose heavenly benediction is "This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased"? 

JESUS, the CHRIST; the Lamb of GOD who takes away the sin of the world. What Child is this --  who is the very image of the invisible holy GOD?  who is the only Mediator between holy GOD and wretched man?  who is the sinner's Advocate and holy Judge? 

Yeshua... Jisu... JesuCristo; the holy, holy, holy Lord GOD of hosts.What Child is this --  indescribably more precious than any treasure?  infinitely more valuable than life itself?  utterly more praiseworthy, deserving all honor and worship? 

The Pearl of great price, the Bread of life; the Great I AM.
What Child is this --   commissioned from above to die for your sins and mine?   crucified on a tree, rejected and abandoned?   slaughtered as the sacrificial Lamb, hated without a cause? 

The Messiah, Redeemer, Savior; the Holy One of Israel. What Child is this --  who forgives fornicators and adulterers?  who gives sight to the blind and sound to the deaf mute?  who satisfies the hungry and quenches the thirsty? 

Jehovah YAHWEH; the Good Shepherd and Author of our faith. This CHILD is the Reason for the season. This holy, holy, holy CHILD is the Resurrection and the Life. This CHILD is mankind's only hope to Paradise. 

The Child JESUS is the fulfillment of the Gospel of GOD -- "that CHRIST died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that He was buried, that He was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures." (1 Corinthians 15:3-4)
