The Christmas season is upon us! (Like it or not!)
Every year we race to get everything done for the holidays. An already busy schedule is made busier by Christmas parties, decorating, cooking, shopping, traveling, and so many other responsibilities. Before we know it, it is December 26 and we have the distinct feeling that we’ve missed something very important. It’s because we have. We know we need to slow down, but when it’s all over, we’ve missed the essence of Christmas.
One of the songs of Christmas that best captures the essence of the season is O Holy Night.
We sing it every year but maybe we are missing the deep doctrinal truths that are buried in its lyrics. A world weighed down by sin and error, waiting for reduce and waiting for a Savior. Maybe today, you are weighed down by sin and error, wasting away without hope. . .looking for a Savior to appear.
Find hope today as we marry the words of this beautiful song to Scripture, and wake up on December 26 knowing that you’ve truly experienced Christmas.
O Holy Night, the stars are brightly shining,
It is the night of our Dear Savior’s birth.
Long lay the world in sin and error pining,
Till He appeared in and the soul felt its worth.
