COME LET US ADORE HIM

NEW HORIZONS COMMUNITY CHURCH- Albertville, MN


It was a real joy to be led into worship by our good friends Mike Graff & Tim Lemmens. Mike admitted that it seemed a bit early for Christmas music, but felt led to sing "O Come All Ye Faithful". As we sang, I thought of the Magi (wise men) mentioned in Matthew 2:7-16. They journeyed to meet young Jesus. They "came to adore Him". Now the scripture doesn't say Jesus' exact age at the time of their visit, but King Herod was led to believe Jesus was around two years old. Can you picture that for a minute? Three wise men, bearing gifts, traveled many miles to bow down and worship a two year old.  Have you been around a two year old lately? In Luke chapter two we see Jesus at age twelve as a young scholar holding His own in the temple discussions. We know His great works in performing numerous miracles and of His sacrifice on the cross to forgive the sins of all mankind. We read about His temptation in the desert and how He remained blameless. Christ lived the example of how God intended man to be at creation. Christ lived a life without sin. Does this mean that two year old Jesus never threw a temper tantrum? Two year old Jesus never threw His food on the floor and never disobeyed Mary and Joseph? He never scattered Joseph's carpentry tools all over the lawn and blamed it on His cousin John? I can tend to be a bit of a speculator, but stop and think about a sinless & fully obedient two year old King. This is one truly worthy of our adoration. I pray the lyrics of this holiday favorite will ring true in our lives all year round. As we near Thanksgiving and the Christmas season let us truly remain faithful, joyful, and triumphant. Come. Let us adore Him.
