CHRISTMAS OF 1924
As the scroll unrolls year by year, to
the time when our Saviour was placed in a
manger, “The Christ Child” ordained to be
a sacrifice for us, a divine gift, and no gift
rings true without a sacrifice—
We are apt to forget in our joy of
Christmas that a cross stood ready for His
crucifixion, this child of God. A heavenly
Father’s sacrifice. The three Wise Men,
who came from afar to pay homage and
offer their costly gifts believing that a new
Kingdom would be established on earth,
and this child would be their King to reign
forever as an earthly King.
So we, in our mistaken idea offer our
gifts—one to the other—forgetting the
“Supreme Giver” whose blood was shed for
us that we might live and enjoy life here
below, and in the life to come, if we follow
ed His teachings of love and sacrifice.
D< we ever tarry in our gaiety of
Christmas shopping and the merry making
on “Christmas Day” to consider the solemn
ity of that “Birthday” and follow with awe
the life from birth to death of this magnifi
cent character whose years were sad and
lonely—“A man of sorrow acquainted with
The world war took from us many of
American, hundred per cent, young men.
They were aided in their bravery by co
operation, cheered by bands of music, and
backed by millions to make their sacrifice
less hard to bear.
But Jesus faced the terrific mob alone.
Jesus the superior—with a magnificent
physique, handsome, adorable and distin
guished. Yet, he was spit upon and bruised
for our transgression. This splendid young
man—only thirty years of age—so brave—
he bore the insult alone.
“He was oppressed and he was afflicted;
. yet he opened not his mouth; he is brought
as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep
before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth
not his mouth.”
Only once did he cry out for human
sympathy—a few hours before his crucifix
ion to his disciples—he said, “Could ye not
watch with me one hour?” His life blood
at the time, was oozing from the pores like
sweat, bloody sweat. This noble young
man was Jesus—The Prince, the “Son of
God the Father,” the only Prince ever born
not made on earth.
He came from a Kingdom unsurpassed
by any realm, the grandeur of which can
not be conceived by human thought, and yet
on this the anniversary of his birth, it’s be
ing made a burlesque, a vaudeville of
“Peace on earth, good will to man” will not
in most cases, be felt on January First 1925.
Way back at the time that Christ was
born there came the fourth Wise Man—he
traveled alone, unaided and unafraid. He
carried no outward gifts, but his soul was
attuned to the sublimity of the meaning of
the birth and his acute intuition grasped
the tragedy in store for the child. A love
thrilled his very being, but he worshiped
afar off, and wrapped himself about in a
robe of silence. He gave not, when needed,
to the suffering, Jesus, or to the worthy
poor, in the midst. He looked on, this
fourth Wise man, but heeded not the hum
ble “Nazarenes” example of love and serv
ice to humanity for he was wedded to false
rule of cast and aristocracy—too weak in
character to be bumble and loving.
“ fhe greatest thing” says some one, “A
man can do for his heavenly Father is to be
kind to some of His other children.” I
wonder why it is that we are not all kinder
than we are? How easily it is done. How
instantaneously it acts. How infallibly it
is remembered. How superabundantly it
pays itself back, for there is no debtor in
the world so honorable, so superbly honor
able as love. Love never faileth—Love is
success—Love is happiness—Love is life—
Love is energy of life.
This life is a school. Jesus, the master
teacher, is ever ready to aid and love us—
always near to be our protector and friend.
Did He not say, “Come unto me all ye
that labor and are heavy laden—take my
yoke upon you and learn of me for I am
meek and lowly in spirit and ye shall find
rest to your souls. Come unto me—come.”
His loving arms are reached out to
wards us—pleadingly—and oh, dear people,
let us not grieve his spirit by false giving.
“Let there be something true and fine
When night slips down to tell
That I have lived this day of mine
Not selfishly but well.”
Let our gifts be “In His Name” bearing His
seal of approval and benediction on this
the holy “Christmas Tide of Nineteen hun
