No One Knew His Name

 3:16-17 (NKJV)

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes In Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

God lost His children not too long after He created them because sin built a wall between them.  But, God had a plan.  When the time was right He would send part of Himself to earth to be the sacrifice that was needed for the wall of sin to be torn down.  The world had been told for hundreds and hundreds of years that a Savior would come.  But, when the time came, all the signs were ignored because the Savior came as a babe, not a king.  Don’t you miss the signs of God calling you back to Him; to the safety of a garden built by God for His children.

No One Knew His Name

The babe was born for all mankind
But no one knew His name.
He left his Father, where He was King
and to earth as a babe He came.

Mary and Joseph had traveled so far
knowing Jesus was soon to be born.
With no room at the inn their choices were few
but the stable left Mary’s heart torn.

As Mary labored to birth God’s babe,
the angels a concert they gave,
to the shepherds, the lowly, the announcement came
as Jesus, in a manger, was laid.

Though shepherds came to pay respect
to the baby the angels proclaimed.
Bethlehem lay fast asleep
so nobody knew His name.

The Star shone announcing the birth,
the One foretold through the ages.
But the people were caught up in the myth they believed
the one told by priests and sages.

A great and mighty king would come
to vanquish their foes all around.
So they looked for a crown, a warrior, a king,
for the trumpets to give mighty sounds.

No one looked for the babe God had planned,
His Son who would one day become,
the sacrifice needed so sins are forgiven
and back to our Father we’d come.

The babe was born for all mankind,
but no one knew His name.
His road was set from birth to death.
It was the reason that He came.

To restore God’s children back to Him,
out of Love, for it brought no fame,
cause the world didn’t get why He was here,
and they didn’t know His name.
