So Bring Him….wait…

Devotional thought of the day….

“What Child is This?” has been my favorite Christman song since I can remember.  I remember sitting in our living room – a mere 6 or 7, and Brother Michael teaching me to play it on the guitar, then accompanying him at the prayer meeting that was held in our home.

Like many Christmas Hymns, it pleads with us, to come to Him, to bring to Him, to worship Him… and so we should.

Yet Christmas isn’t about our coming to Him, it is about His coming to us.

It isn’t even about what we bring to Him, it is about redemption, and grace, and peace – the gifts He brings to us.

Yes we respond, yes I would love our church filled with people gifting back – giving Jesus what He has given them – their lives.

But it is first, and always… about what He brings……

And maybe, as the world recognizes that… and they need to…more and more voices will be lifted in praise… and singing Gloria in Excelsis Deo…..

For indeed we need to sing His praises…and enter into His glory…

I am a pastor of a Concordia Lutheran Church in Cerritos, California, where we rejoice in God's saving us from our sin, and the unrighteousness of the world. It is all about His work, the gift of salvation given to all who trust in Jesus Christ, and what He has done that is revealed in Scripture. God deserves all the glory, honor and praise, for He has rescued and redeemed His people.
