Hark! hark, my soul! angelic songs are swelling, O’er earth’s green fields and ocean’s wave-beat shore; How sweet the truth those blessed strains are telling, Of that new life when sin shall be no more! Refrain: Angels of Jesus, angels of light, Singing to welcome the pilgrims of the night! Onward we go, for still we hear them singing, ‘Come, weary souls, for Jesus bids you come;’ And through the dark, its echoes sweetly ringing, The music of the Gospel leads us home. [Refrain]// Joy to the world, the Lord is come! Let earth receive her King; let every heart prepare Him room, And heaven and nature sing, and heaven and nature sing, and heaven and heaven, and nature sing. Joy to the world, the Savour reigns! Let men their songs employ; while fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains repeat the sounding joy, repeat the sounding joy, repeat, repeat, the sounding joy
What a glorious morning our Savoiur Jesus Christ was born unto men of good will. Glory be to you Father for this act of love and great salvation upon the sons of man that God came down from heaven and dwell among men. Thank you glorious Father, for Your love that knows no bound, glory be to You Lord Jesus, who is like unto my Father. it in joy to the world, that we are not condemn forever but have the opportunity to be with You after here on earth. Thank You Father, thank you Lord.
Beloved, Jesus came in flesh to dwell amongst men, he forsake His heaven glory to bring salvation to us, what a great love our Saviour has bestowed unto us. This day marked the highest of all gift to men which God has bestowed unto us, that we may be called the sons of God. glory be to You on high.
Beloved, the birth of Jesus is the reason for the season which we must embrace and run with passion the reason for His coming. We must not miss this glorious opportunity to give our life and all to Him and be part of the Holy family of His. For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich. Therefore may this great sacrifice not be in vain in Jesus Name.
God’s gift to man is eternal life, may we through the grace of our Lord God be made perfect and acceptable sacrifices that we by this grace when we have spent our life here on earth we may be fit to share in the glory that will be reveal to us at the end through our Lord Jesus Christ amen. For in the favour of the Lord is life (Ps 30:5).
May this Christmas be an unusual one to you, may it not be an occasion to only eat and merry but may it be an opportunity that will bring us closer and nearer to our dear Lord Jesus Christ. Let us discover more:
“For your sakes he became poor.” 2 Corinthians 8:9
The Lord Jesus Christ was eternally rich, glorious, and exalted; but “though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor.” As the rich saint cannot be true in his communion with his poor brethren unless of his substance he ministers to their necessities, so (the same rule holding with the head as between the members), it is impossible that our Divine Lord could have had fellowship with us unless He had imparted to us of His own abounding wealth, and had become poor to make us rich.
Had He remained upon His throne of glory, and had we continued in the ruins of the fall without receiving His salvation, communion would have been impossible on both sides. Our position by the fall, apart from the covenant of grace, made it as impossible for fallen man to communicate with God as it is for Belial to be in concord with Christ.
In order, therefore, that communion might be compassed, it was necessary that the rich kinsman should bestow his estate upon his poor relatives, that the righteous Saviour should give to His sinning brethren of His own perfection, and that we, the poor and guilty, should receive of His fulness grace for grace; that thus in giving and receiving, the One might descend from the heights, and the other ascend from the depths, and so be able to embrace each other in true and hearty fellowship.
Poverty must be enriched by Him in whom are infinite treasures before it can venture to commune; and guilt must lose itself in imputed and imparted righteousness ere the soul can walk in fellowship with purity. Jesus must clothe His people in His own garments, or He cannot admit them into His palace of glory; and He must wash them in His own blood, or else they will be too defiled for the embrace of His fellowship.
O believer, herein is love! For your sake the Lord Jesus “became poor” that He might lift you up into communion with Himself.
Yes! for our sake He became poor that we be lifted high to commune with Him afterward he will receive us in His glory, let discover more:
“The glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together.” Isaiah 40:5
We anticipate the happy day when the whole world shall be converted to Christ; when the gods of the heathen shall be cast to the moles and the bats; when other false religion shall be exploded, and the crescent of Mohammed shall wane, never again to cast its baleful rays upon the nations; when kings shall bow down before the Prince of Peace, and all nations shall call their Redeemer blessed.
Some despair of this. They look upon the world as a vessel breaking up and going to pieces, never to float again. We know that the world and all that is therein is one day to be burnt up, and afterwards we look for new heavens and for a new earth; but we cannot read our Bibles without the conviction that—
“Jesus shall reign where’er the sun
Does his successive journeys run.”
We are not discouraged by the length of His delays; we are not disheartened by the long period which He allots to the church in which to struggle with little success and much defeat. We believe that God will never suffer this world, which has once seen Christ’s blood shed upon it, to be always the devil’s stronghold. Christ came hither to deliver this world from the detested sway of the powers of darkness.
What a shout shall that be when men and angels shall unite to cry “Hallelujah, hallelujah, for the Lord God Omnipotent reigneth!” What a satisfaction will it be in that day to have had a share in the fight, to have helped to break the arrows of the bow, and to have aided in winning the victory for our Lord! Happy are they who trust themselves with this conquering Lord, and who fight side by side with Him, doing their little in His name and by His strength!
How unhappy are those on the side of evil! It is a losing side, and it is a matter wherein to lose is to lose and to be lost forever. On whose side are you?
Father, we may live in the true knowledge that Jesus birth, death and resurrection was to reconcile us back to Yourself, may we through Your divine grace be worthy to partake of that Great feast of the Last Supper where Christ Himself will superintend.
