The Cradle and the Grave

screen-shot-2016-11-11-at-11-46-22-amIt is a pity that so many people celebrate Christmas without getting any real benefit out of it. And why do they not get the proper benefit?

Because they do not correctly connect the cradle of Jesus with the grave of Jesus. Jesus came into the cradle in order that He might go into and come out of the grave. The manger without the empty tomb would be the saddest farce upon a sad-mad race.

– Cornelius Van Til, The Cradle and the Grave (From: Sermons and Addresses of Cornelius Van Til)
