It is Christmas Eve up here in north America! I know this advent is up abit late, but I was taking some family time most of the day. Angels From The Realms of Glory sounds new me, but sounds like a good song of just being at peace in His presence! How awesome a feeling like that is, and to be thankful for the gift that God had given us!
Lets find out more awesome stuff in Luke 2 again.
13 Suddenly, the angel was joined by a vast host of others—the armies of heaven—praising God and saying,
14 “Glory to God in highest heaven,
and peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased.”
Angels From The Realms Of Glory
Angels from the realms of glory,
Wing your flight o’er all the earth;
Ye who sang creation’s story,
Now proclaim Messiah’s birth:
Come and worship,
Come and worship,
Worship Christ, the newborn King!
The actions of the angels are one of the most exciting aspects of the Christmas story from Luke 2. First, an angel suddenly appears to the shepherds to tell them the good news of Jesus birth (Luke 2:9). Then, as if the shepherds haven’t had enough, a multitude of angels suddenly appeared in full concert to finish it off (Luke 2:13). This was an epic celebration like nothing ever seen in the Bible, and it was displayed not for the government officials, the upper class of the city, or the spiritual elite, but for the lowly shepherds. What a beautiful tension and a perfect picture of the power of Christmas. It is the biggest news that mankind could ever know! The celebration is led by the very angels who live in the perfect presence of an all-powerful God, and yet, the message is meant for the lowly and broken.
This old carol is a simple but powerful reminder of all who have been invited to celebrate and to worship Jesus. Jesus is the most amazing gift given to us. God loved us so much that He sent His only son to enter humanity so that ultimately we could have the chance to be right before a holy God. That is the power of Christmas, and the angels understood it. The shepherds experienced it first-hand. The wise men believed it. They not only joined the worship celebration, but their excitement and worship inspired others to do the same. This Christmas, let our worship would be so authentic and exciting that we would draw others to “Come and worship; come and worship; Worship Christ the newborn King!”
How can you celebrate and worship Jesus throughout this Christmas season?
How can you inspire others to do the same?
Some go to a church service in the evening of Christmas Eve, I did that sometimes, this advent reading has kept me thinking about Christ and even just always thinking, praying, reading to I don't get carried away with comercialism. I think by telling people the best way I can about the Lord and why Christmas happened! Lend a helping hand too!
Christmas isn't just a season – it's the reason we call ourselves "Christians". Yes, Easter is important too – but if He never came, He wouldn't have gone to the cross. I do appreciate how you are sharing Christ girl! It's encouraging to me to be reading this advent and song devo every day. Thanks! … oh, and MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
