You know how you can’t stop looking a photos of cute babies or little puppies? It’s like they are so adorable, that looking away hurts? There’s an undeniable urge to just squeeze those little cheeks and kiss their furry puppy head.
Oh come let us adore Him…
It’s one of the most well-known carols around. A call to come adore our Savior, born a baby, only to lay down His life for us as God’s Son.
How often do we truly adore Christ? Does our love for Him overwhelm us? Does the mere thought of being separated from Him makes us ache deep in our hearts?
I have a 6 month old nephew, so I know about thing or two about adorable babies.
Can you imagine, millennia ago, Mary starting into the face of her newborn son, surrounded by animals, in a shelter not fit for humans? Can you see her looking down at her baby, her hear swelling with love for the infant in her arms, one which would save the world.
Can you see Mary adoring her child, just as you adore your own?
Oh come let us adore Him, Christ the Lord.
[Tweet “This Christmas, will we adore Him? Truly, deeply, in the innermost parts of our hearts.”]
