Good Morning Harvesters,
Come and behold Him,
Born the King of Angels;
O come, let us adore Him
"Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name ,that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father" -
Philippians 2:9-11 (NIV)
Adoration is a word that we love to use during the Christmas season thanks largely to the classic carol O Come, All Ye Faithful as we sing, “O come, let us adore Him.”
So many of us, during the Christmas season spend more time thinking about Christ and giving Him adoration than any other time of the year. Think about it for a moment. More people go to church during Christmas than any other time of the year.
We also tend to find ourselves singing and listening to songs about Jesus more during the Christmas season. As a result, Christmas is a time when we love to praise Him, honor Him, and adore Him much in the way Philippians 2:9-11 describes.
While it’s great that Christ gets so much of our attention and adoration during Christmas, it’s important to remember that we should pay that same amount of attention to Him 12 months a year instead of just one.
Sure, it’s easier to get caught up in all the Christmas hype and spend more time thinking, singing, praying, and adoring Christ during December, but in order to have a true relationship with Christ we must adore and spend time with Him daily and not just during Christmas.
This year as you move out of the Christmas season and back into the normalcy of life, strive to find a way to capture that Christmas spirit that will enable you to adore Him and grow with Him EVERY DAY of your life.
Looking Forward to having The TriTones with us on Sunday. A group of Jazz musicians from Mitchell will be taking part in our morning worship service. You will not want to miss and a great time to invite family and friends.
It is also the third week of advent and will be looking at the carol 'Away in a Manger'. See you Sunday!
