O Come, All Ye Faithful
Come and behold Him,
Born the King of Angels;
O come, let us adore Him
It is a well known fact that more people attend church services at Christmas than at any other time of the year. Folks who haven't stepped foot inside a church all year long make the time and effort to go and celebrate the coming of the King of Angels. The fast-paced faith-less become the adoring faith-full. I don't say that to imply that they have no faith, only that church attendance and wholehearted devotion has been simmering on a low heat back burner for 11 months. Thanksgiving rolls around and our renewed practice of gratitude moves us back to the high heat front, bringing on a rolling boil of faithfulness and love toward our fellow man and Holy Savior.
What if this time we keep that boil going all year long? What if that love and faithfulness boils over, spilling out to spread around? And what if we are continually replenished by Living Water so that we never run dry? What if...
Philippians 2:9-11 says-
Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
What will it take for your faith and devotion to Christ to burn "hot" this year?
