Complete Adoration

Amber Irving, Pastor’s Wife
 
 
 
O come, let us adore Him, Christ the Lord. Jesus Christ, The Word, became flesh and made His dwelling among us.
 
The Word who was in the beginning with God, the Word who was God himself. The Word who spoke into the darkness and created the light, who hovered over the surface of the deep. The Word, whose sanctuary is strength and glory, who inspires the trees of the field to clap their hands, the heavens to rejoice, and the earth to be glad. The Word, the Truth who sanctifies me and sanctifies you. The Word.
 
For unto us a child is born – a newborn baby lying in a manger, a child teaching in the temple, a man healing the sick, raising the dead, crying in the garden, walking out of the tomb, fully alive. Unto us a son is given. The Son of God, the blessed hope, our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, wrapped in flesh. The Word became flesh.
 
Reigning not just on His own heavenly throne, but on the throne of David, here on earth. The government upon his shoulders, its greatness knowing no end. Establishing and upholding his kingdom with justice and righteousness, because of the zeal of the Lord Almighty, not just now but forever. The word became flesh and made his dwelling.
 
But do not be afraid. Go and see this thing that has happened, that the Lord has told us about. The Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace has come to be with us. The heavens rejoice and the earth is glad that He is here, dwelling with us. Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth, with us, peace to those on whom his favor rests.
The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us.
 
The only right response to God’s wrapping himself in flesh and coming to live with us, is complete adoration. Once He opens our eyes to see the deep, wide, long love that reached down to rescue us in our greatest need, we can’t help but respond in adoration. The pure and holy Word became like us and lived among us so that he could pay the price of our sin for us. O come, let us adore Him, Christ the Lord.
