Do you enjoy Christmas music or does it start to get on your nerves after a while? Maybe you are one of those people that could listen to it all year round. A favorite of many during this time of year is O Holy Night.
Why not take a moment to let these lyrics sink in today?
“Long lay the world, in sin and error pining
TIL HE APPEARED, and the soul felt its worth!”
Now compare these lyrics with Galatians 4:4-5:
“But when the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law, so that He might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.”
Can you relate to this on a personal level? Along with the whole world, we have each personally been corrupted by sin, wallowing in our own grievous errors and pining for someone to rescue us.
Then that essential SOMEONE appeared!! "When the fullness of the time came," Jesus Christ appeared and the soul felt its worth. Your worth comes from HIM. He redeemed you; He adopted you; He made you HIS CHILD!
Fall on your knees. Worship the King!
Nothing and no one compares with Jesus. No matter what you are facing in life, you can be sure of this – Emmanuel! God is with you.
