Merry Christmas 2022

Whether you read this on Christmas Day or the day after, I want to wish you a merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.


On this day we celebrate the King of Kings who left His throne in Heaven to live among us. Knowing we could never reach Him on our own, He came down to us—as one of us—he put on human flesh to save us from our sin.

Whatever challenges you face today, remember the Light of the World has conquered the evil one. He was born in a manger to die on a cross to rise from a grave—so that we might live forever. Today’s post is a simple invite to worship. Every picture you see is a link to a classic Christmas song that leads to worship of the one whose birth we celebrate this day.

So let’s lift our hands and voices in worship!

Let’s take a pastry, light a candle and sing happy birthday Jesus! Rejoice for the Savior has come and he has brought joy!


Amen!

This is a little known song by a little known artist that in my opinion is seriously underrated. To the end of giving his work a little more love, I give you here the lyrics to the Chris Rice song, "Welcome to our world."



[Verse 1]

Tears are falling, hearts are breaking

How we need to hear from God

You've been promised, we've been waiting

Welcome Holy Child, welcome Holy Child

[Verse 2]

Hope that you don't mind our manger

How I wish we would have known

But long-awaited, Holy Stranger

Make yourself at home, please, make yourself at home

[Verse 3]

Bring your peace into our violence

Bid our hungry souls be filled

Word now breaking heaven's silence

Welcome to our world, welcome to our world



[Verse 4]

Fragile finger sent to heal us

Tender brow prepared for thorn

Tiny heart whose blood will save us

Unto us is born, unto us is born

[Verse 5]

So wrap our injured flesh around you

Breathe our air and walk our sod

Rob our sin and make us holy

Perfect Son of God, perfect Son of God

Welcome to our world.


O for the day when every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, I live for that day. I really get a kick out of Jon McNaughton's work.

It's nice to see artists using their powers for good.
