The Reason for the Season
He was sold for silver-thirty
And then betrayed with a kiss
Jesus was just three and thirty.
You may say, ‘What is the point of this?’
The Lamb of God was crucified
That He would take away our sin,
He was maltreated, vilified
Because of my sin and your sin.
He died the death that we should die
To reconcile us to the Most High.
He removed the wall of partition
And closed the gap of separation.
Like a Lamb led to the slaughter
He went silently. Willingly
He did the will of the Father
And He did it well- excellently.
He satisfied God’s righteous demand
To make us the righteousness of God.
He suffered in the hands of a wicked band
All in fulfilment of the will and word of God.
But on the third day He arose
The cross could not stop Him
The grave could not hold Him
He rose so you and I may rise.
Now at the Father’s right hand
He intercedes for you and I.
So you and I can enter the Land
Let us press on and occupy.
He’s alive, He’s risen
He lives in those who believe
He has opened the door, the prison
For us to come alive and live.
That is the reason for the season.
