Intentional Advent: Day 3

You are invited to participate in An Intentional Advent! Julie Kay Harbour and Leona Dalavai Scott are teaming up to put together this series on some thoughtful and intentional ways we can prepare our hearts for the Savior’s birth.

One of the joys of Christmas is the music and carols. Many of the carols transport me back to Bethlehem, where Jesus was born. I try to put myself in the shoes of Mary, Joseph, the Wise men, and Shepherds.

Inspired by a Bible Study Fellowship Christmas devotional, here is a stanza from the song, O Come All Ye Faithful:

Yea, Lord, we greet thee Born this happy morning; Jesus, to thee be all glory given! Word of the Father

Now in flesh appearing!

O come, let us adore Him

O come, let us adore Him

O come, let us adore Him, Christ the Lord

The lyrics take us among the shepherds who first journeyed to Bethlehem over 2,000 years ago and with the “faithful” who have journeyed to Bethlehem in their prayers, meditation and worship since then. Although we cannot physically witness Jesus in the manger, we can still travel to Bethlehem in our hearts.

What does it mean to adore Christ the Lord? Or how do you adore Christ the Lord?
