We sing a song in our church that talks about going into the Enemy’s camp and taking back what was stolen.
I don’t think that we tend to think of what we have lost due to sin. Nor do we think of the Christ child coming to Earth armed for battle. Yet this is indeed how He came, The Hero, The Man, The Divine.
The Enemy understood, even if we didn’t. In a little while, the sound of Rachel weeping for her children because they were no more rose up in the land because that Enemy saw his end.
Baby Jesus, meek and mild, would crush that Enemy’s head. And this He has accomplished.
Now we can plunder the Enemy’s camp and take back what was stolen from us through the power of Christ’s might.
Look what the Lord has done!
Our sins forgotten!
Man, the abode of God!
Being changed from one degree of glory into another!
This day, consider what the Lord has done.
