“O come Let us adore Him, Christ the Lord.”
O Come, All Ye Faithful, John F. Wade, Frederick Oakley
I love the carols of Christmas. When I study them, I learn so much about God and His relationship with man. What I have learned from O Come, All Ye Faithful I can apply to my worship of God everyday of the year.
I am to enter into His presence with joy. God reminds me of Ps 122:1. The NIV says, “I rejoiced with those who said to me, ‘Let us go to the house of the Lord.’”
God wants me to enter his house victorious. He desires that I come to him with my personal issues settled. This doesn’t always happen but I am there seeking His guidance in the ongoing stresses.
He wants me to glorify Him through Jesus. I can do this by giving testimony of His presence in my life. I can also do this by exhibiting His attributes to others.
The Father desires that we glorify the Son. I can do this by doing what Jesus would do for those who are hurting, in need, and face illness and surgery-theirs and family members.
