Come! The invitation is given. Come and adore Him! “O come, all ye faithful.” Will we accept the invitation this Christmas? The days are quickly slipping away. Busy schedules and filled calendars crowd out the Christ child. Will we turn our minds and hearts toward Bethlehem? Can God our host count on us to heed His personal invitation?
He rewards those who in personal faith answer His call. “O come, all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant.” True abiding faith in Jesus results in joy and a triumphant life. We are often down, but we are not defeated.
“We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair, persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed- (2 Corinthians 4:8-9 NKJ)” Jesus offers victory; we come to Him in humble worship and adoration. “Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place (2 Corinthians 2:14 NKJ).”
