25 songs of Christmas: Dec 4 – What Child is This?

What child is this in mean estate where ox and ass are feeding? What child is this born in a stable? This is Christ the king.

What child is this born to an unwed mother? What child is this in dirty clothes? This is Christ the king.

What child is this born into poverty? To parents who really can’t afford him? What child is this born on the wrong side of the border? What child is who is refuge in the land of his father? This is Christ the king.

What child is this, who goes to bed hungry? What child lays sick without access to medical care? Who has no money for books or school supplies and is destined to fall behind? This is Christ the king

What child is this gunned down in the street? Or in their classroom? Or Library? This is Christ the king.

What child is this being held at the border? What child who lives in fear of being found by the authorities… or not being found by the authorities? This child also is Christ the king.

The issues of the day have never occurred in a vacuum. Not in the time of Jesus and not now. Decisions made in statehouses have very real consequences for very real people. In Luke 9:48 Jesus says, “Whoever receives this child in my name receives me.”

Could you look at Christ and send him back across the boarder? Could you tell God incarnate He didn’t deserve health care? Could you refuse Him food? Could you look Jesus in the eye and say He deserved to die?

And the king will answer them, “Truly, I say to you, as you did to one of the least of these, you did to me,” (Matt 25:40)

Every child is Christ the king.
