Love incarnate, love divine

Star and angels gave the sign

Bow to babe on bended knee

The Savior of humanity

Unto us a Child is born

He shall reign forevermore

Come and see what God has done

The story of amazing love!

The light of the world, given for us

Son of God and Son of man

There before the world began

Born to suffer, born to save

Born to raise us from the grave

Christ the everlasting Lord

He shall reign forevermore

Today’s Devotion

“Come and see what God has done”

In so many of our beloved Christmas songs we find a call to action that asks us to “come.” Have you ever noticed that?

It’s because in order to follow God, we must come to him. Of course he is always there, but we must respond, must come. There is an action required on our part in order to be a witness to the miracle of who God is.

The coming is not a one-time action, nor is it a compartmentalized function of our lives. In order for us – for you – to fully grasp the magnitude of God and his amazing love, it needs to be fully infiltrated into every part of your life. This is not just for Sundays or designated times of Bible study or prayer, but you must come to God at all moments of your day.

While you are driving, working, running errands, playing, resting, etc… you must come to God. 

Why?

Because it is worth everything. A life fully infused with God is one that most never breach. It’s a life with immense purpose and love. It is living your life to the fullest as you seek God in every moment.

Is it hard? You bet.

But anything worthwhile is hard. Your natural instincts will fight you, but if you stay disciplined, and through God’s help you will get better and better at coming to him.

This is what Christmas is all about, and it’s not just for this season, but all the days of your life.

Prayer

Jesus, 

Help me to come to you. Help me to seek you in every moment of my day. I need you Lord, more than air, more than food, more than sleep, for you are my life support. As I am excited to be in the Christmas season, I pray that this same feeling carries me far into the new year. May this be a new, deeper way of life for me, a life of coming to you. Amen.
