On The Eleventh Day Of Christmas...

The eleventh day of Christmas brings in the eleven pipers piping. This is a good one. The eleven pipers represent the eleven apostles who were chosen by Jesus (not counting Judas Isacariot, who betrayed Him).

Imagine, children joyfully following a piper. This is how the disciples followed Jesus, listening and learning from the Master. Not only that, they called others to follow, as well. They piped an everlasting message of joy in the salvation of mankind through Jesus Christ, God's Son. The message of hope in His ressurection from the dead. This is important, everlasting life was not granted to men through His birth. This came at the cross. Without His ressurection, we have nothing.

Mr 3:16 And Simon he surnamed Peter;

Mr 3:17 And James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James; and he surnamed them Boanerges, which is, The sons of thunder:

Mr 3:18 And Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Canaanite,

Mr 3:19 And Judas Iscariot, which also betrayed him: and they went into an house.

Only one day to go! Come back tomorrow for the twelfth day of Christmas and the promised missing ingredient involving the phrase, my true love gave to me.
