When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born. So they said to him, “In Bethlehem of Judea, for thus it is written by the prophet: ‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, Are not the least among the rulers of Judah; For out of you shall come a Ruler Who will shepherd My people Israel.'” (Matthew 2:3-6)

There in Bethlehem, just as the prophet so wrote, was born the Christ. Not only was King Herod troubled, so also was all Jerusalem.  Such a little baby created such fear in the hearts of men.  Who was this child who would rule? We know that in the little town of Bethlehem was born our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.

I would ask you to note of the words of a beautiful Christmas song, words that describe this Blessed Hope. A song of hope about the One who was born “The Rose Of Bethlehem.” Watch the video and hear the words that are a most fitting tribute to our King . . .

There’s a Rose in Bethlehem
With a beauty quite divine
Perfect in this world of sin
On this silent holy night.
There’s a fragrance much like hope
That it sends upon the wind
Reaching out to every soul
From a lowly manger’s crib
There’s a Rose in Bethlehem
Colored red like mercy’s blood    
Tis the flower of our faith
Tis the blossom of God’s love
Though its blossom is fresh with youth
Surely what will be He knows
For a tear of morning dew
Is rolling down the Rose
 O Rose of Bethlehem
How lovely pure and sweet
Born to glorify the Father
Born to wear the thorns for me.
What beautiful words. They cause us to pause, in wonder and awe, of the precious gift that God sent to this evil, sinful world on a night so long ago. Surely this Child can be described as the “Rose of Bethlehem.” Surely He bears a “beauty quite divine.” From the “manger’s crib” comes to each of us “a fragrance much like hope.”  He was born to die, a “blossom . . . fresh with youth,” yet knowing what will be. . . “a tear of morning dew is rolling down the Rose.”

For you and I . . . O blessed be the “Rose of Bethlehem,” so “lovely, pure, and sweet.” O what God has done for us!

“Does He not deserve our greatest love, our greatest praise, our greatest thanksgiving, and our loving obedience?” Christmas is all about “the Rose.” Christmas is all about Jesus!

In this Christmas season, take time to really hear the words of such wonderful songs of our Savior, of Jesus Christ our Lord, who was “born to glorify the Father,” who was “born to wear the thorns for me” … and for you.

Oh, praise be to His holy name, in this season when we celebrate His birth, and every day throughout the year.

Keep the melodies of Christmas in your heart to remind you of the Reason For The Season.
