we acknowledge the fact >that'
Christmas has come true in his- j
tory, we. would do well to pause |
and ask ourselves this question: :
Has it come true in our hearts?,
Does Christmas work his salva

not, how can he? ' Such ques- j
tions carry us far beyond the
gold and glitter of Christmas,.
into the deeper meaning of the
Salvation through Christ waits
upon our personal choice and ac- J
tion. The truth of Christmas is
relevant only as we lay claim'
upon it. This was the sharp and
probing requirement laid
Nicodemus by Jesus, as repMfel
in John 3:1-6. And nothing has
changed .to subtract from the
fundamental truth of what Jesus
said to Nicodemus. Now, as
then, we begin life on earth
when we are born in our fleshy.

the second and all-important step 1
into life awaits our choice and I
