The Cradle, The Cross and The Tomb



The Cradle is empty, because Jesus had to grow up a righteous man, fulfilling the prophecies of the Messiah, and take our sins on Himself, that we might be made the righteousness of God.

The Cross is empty, because when He said, "It is finished", it was. And He died.

The Tomb is empty, because death could not hold Jesus, and He is risen, and in some mysterious way is seated at the right hand of the Father in heaven, making intercession for us, and yet amazingly dwells in His children, "Christ in you, the hope of glory".

The Cradle, the Cross and the Tomb are all empty, that we might be filled with His Life.
  
Have a Blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year, remembering that nothing can separate you from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
