For as the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one side to the other, so will the Son of Man be in his day. Luke 17:24
But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness shall rise with healing in its wings. Malachi 4:2

But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ . . . Galatians 6:14
For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. 1 Corinthians 2:2
Let the motto upon your whole ministry be - "Christ is All!" - Mather

"That's My King!" Who's The Greatest Man Ever Born Though By Betrayal He Was Worn, Torn, Silent Like A Sheep Shorn, Treated With Scorn, And Pierced With Thorn He Rose To Be Salvation's Horn!

If Jesus was not born, it would be better if no one was ever born
All would have a Judas heart
All would deny God
All would be lost
All would be in hell
All would perish
All would die, forever
But Jesus was born; He was betrayed; and He died and rose so that we might live!

If Jesus was not born, it would be better if no one was ever born
There would be no salvation
There would be no amazing grace
There would be no hope
There would be no forgiveness
There would be no joy
There would be no heaven
But Jesus was born; He was betrayed; and He died and rose so that we might live!

If Jesus was not born, it would be better if no one was ever born
There would be no Bible
There would be no seed of the woman to crush the head of the serpent, Satan
There would be no one who fulfilled all the prophecies about the coming Messiah
There would be no suffering Servant Who was wounded for our transgressions and crushed for our iniquities
There would be no fountain filled with blood drawn from Immanuel's veins!
But Jesus was born; He was betrayed; and He died and rose so that we might live!

If Jesus was not born, it would be better if no one was ever born
There would be no God-Man
There would be no greatest phenomenon that has ever crossed the horizon of this world!
There would be no blessed assurance, Jesus is mine, oh what a foretaste of glory divine!
There would be no Jesus what a friend of sinners!
There would be no incarnate King of kings and Lord of lords; Alpha and Omega; Beginning and End; or First and Last Whose love is vast and can't be past or outclassed because "Christ is all!" and unsurpassed!
Because Jesus was born; He was betrayed; and He died and rose so that we might live!

If Jesus was not born, it would be better if no one was ever born
There would be no hope in your depression or despair
There would be no friend Who will never leave you nor forsake you in your loneliness
There would be no Lover Who satisfies like no other when you have nobody else
There would be no comfort in your sorrow
There would be no firm foundation when all around your soul gives way
But Jesus was born; He was betrayed; and He died and rose so that we might live!

If Jesus was not born, it would be better if no one was ever born
There would be no Savior
There would be no Immanuel
There would be no Redeemer
There would be no Messiah
There would be no Mediator
There would be no Lion of the Tribe of Judah
There would be no Lord Our Righteousness
There would be no Holy One of God
There would be no Second and Last Adam
There would be no Desire of All the Nations
There would be no Author and the Finisher of Our Faith
There would be no Horn of Salvation
There would be no Image of the Invisible God
There would be no Fullness of the Godhead Bodily
There would be no The Way, the Truth, the Life
There would be no Bread of Life
There would be no Living Water
There would be no Good Shepherd
There would be no Resurrection and the Life
There would be no Rose of Sharon
There would be no Lily of the Valley
There would be no Altogether Lovely One
There would be no Fairest among Ten Thousand
There would be no Bright and Morning Star
There would be no Lamb of God Who takes away the sins of the world
There would be no Beloved Son in Whom God is well pleased
But Jesus was born; He was betrayed; and He died and rose so that we might live!

If Jesus was not born, it would be better if no one was ever born
And there cannot be enough written about what would not be if He were not born
Because the earth cannot contain the books that could be written about Him because He was born
I could have gone on and given you over two hundred names of Jesus that would not be if He wasn't born
Paul wouldn't have had anything to preach about if he wasn't born because Paul knew nothing to preach except Jesus Christ and Him crucified
There would be nothing more for me to ever say from this pulpit again if Jesus was not born
There would no church anywhere, and we wouldn't know what to do!
But Jesus was born; He was betrayed; and He died and rose so that we might live!
