This Baby

Christmas may seem like an isolated holiday. But, without Jesus being God in the flesh, living a perfect life, giving His life sacrificially, and rising from the dead, there is no Christmas. “This baby is like no other, holy and human right from the start.” He was born to bring us salvation.

In Ephesians 3:10-11, Paul says there was an “eternal purpose” carried out in Christ Jesus. The moment that sin separated man from God, God revealed His plan for Messiah. His plans are always accomplished.

My word be which goes forth from My mouth;
It will not return to Me empty,
Without accomplishing what I desire,
And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it. – Is.55:11

This song reminds us that Jesus was indeed fully man. But, He was also fully God, come to complete of God’s plan of salvation for us all.

Well He cried when He was hungry

Did all the things that babies do

He rocked and He napped on His mother’s lap

And He wiggled and giggled and cooed

There were the cheers when He took His first step

And the tears when He got His first teeth

Almost everything about this little baby

Seemed as natural as it could be

But this baby made the angels sing

And this baby made new star shine in the sky

And this baby had come to change the world

This baby was God’s own son

This baby was like no other one

This baby was God with us,

This baby was Jesus

And this baby grew into a young boy

Who learned to read and write and wrestle with dad

There was the climbin’ of trees and scrapin’ of knees

And all the fun that a boy’s born to have

He grew taller and some things started changing

Like His complexion and the sound of His voice

There was work to be done as a carpenter’s son

And all the neighbors said He’s such a fine boy

But this boy made the angels sing

And this boy made a new star shine in the sky

This boy had come to change the world

This boy was God’s own son

This boy was like no other one

This boy was God with us

This boy became a man

And love made Him laugh

And death made Him cry

With the life that He lived

And the death that He died

He showed us heaven with His hands and His heart

‘Cause this man was God’s own son

This man was like no other one

Holy and human right from the start

This baby made the angels sing

And this baby made a new star shine in the sky

This baby had come to change the world

This baby was God’s own son

This baby was like no other one

This baby was God with us

This baby

This baby was Jesus

Yeah

This baby was Jesus

This baby was Jesus

We may never understand how Christ could be God and man, but we can know the purpose for which He came. So we can share the good news of Christmas. Yes, a baby was born. And this baby had come to change the world.
