What Child is This?

“Do you realize who this child is?

Do you recognize Him as your Lord and Master?

Do I truly recognize Christ as God?

Or do I praise Him with my lips and deny Him with my life? “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven”(Matt. 7:21).

Do I not deny Christ every time I despise humility? Do I not reject Him every time I refuse to deny myself for others as He denied Himself for me?”    (Vassilios Papavassiliou, Meditations for Advent: Preparing for Christ’s Birth, Kindle Loc. 702-5)
