Live The Way Jesus Lived
Christmas a time for joy and cheer
by Bernedita Rosinha Pinto
a time to rejoice the birth of Jesus;
making little mangers,
lighting up the Christmas trees,
carols, songs and jingle bells,
merriment and celebrations everywhere.
The child who was born in a manger
where a star shone to show the light
to the three kings who came with gifts
of gold, frankincense and myrrh.
Jesus never sought worldly treasures,
He lived and grew up to be the Lord of peace
to cure and heal the sick and dying
and taught of forgiveness of sins and sacrifices.
The little child born in Bethlehem in a stable
preached to live by love,
by peace and by prayers,
and to follow his teachings-
to forgive and to expect forgiveness,
to care about others selflessly,
to say with reverence the humble prayer:
'Our Father in Heaven';
He asked to re-enact the Last Supper,
saying - "Do this in memory of me".
Lord Jesus message of love shines
by his sacrifice on the cross.
Today He reigns in the Heavenly realm
and to be with Him:
live the life Jesus did.
Jesus O' Jesus- child of Bethlehem
in us rises the spirit of togetherness
as you told us to love one another
just as you did.
