A poem for this, the day celebrated as symbolizing Christ’s birth. Merry Christmas! Christmas… Christ Mass… A mass for Christ. Then then does that or might it actually mean? Is it really only about the birth of Christ? Or, is it more about the fullness of time and how in each measure, the reconcilement between Holy God and Sinful Mankind has unfolded in the fullness of time….
In the Fullness of Time by Michael Romani What then is the meaning of Christmas? The story of this day told in its mass Is one of the fullness of time Taking in the mysterious and sublime More than beautiful greeting card scenes There is the truth that it truly means That essence of this very blessed day It cannot be reduce to nativity plays God in Christ reconciles the world to Him With a depth that transcends all hymns When we examine Christmas from God's perspective Its in this we find our beliefs caught in reflective In the moments of truth that are revealed Though never intentionally meant to be concealed God sent forth His Son for our redemption Though this too rarely reaches our contemplation Each man and woman has become God's heirs As we utter our toasts lifted in our holiday airs The coming of the fullness of time may seem abstract And difficult to grasp, but, the time of birth is exact God in His sovereignty rules majestically over all As the reconcilement of man and God is recalled From before the heavens and earth were created All was in place while the firmaments patiently waited The working of God's hand aligned events to His will Promises delivered from the seed of woman reveal That Jesus born of a women may have seemed ordinary But was necessarily God and human so very extraordinary Jesus, then, was born under the role of Moses' law So that He might redeem those born also under the law We all fall very short and all are under condemnation But, the spotless Lamb of God would pay for our redemption In doing this, we have found the glorious reality That we are all now adopted into God's true family By nature, we children of wrath are under Divine protection Given our new identity as given by God's intervention Called to live our lives by steps in a new way As children of light called out as servants today Abstaining from the darkness that God so hates Stumbled along the way, the cross delivers our fates Until in that fullness of time, Jesus does return We must holdfast, living true as we continue to learn Anticipating the glory of His triumph returned Guided by His inspiration and salvation we must discern (c) December 25, 2019 Michael Romani All Rights Reserved
