I may be accused of cheating from my fellow carol pickers as the video actually cover 2 carols. The video just happened to have "Angels we have heard on High" tagged to the end off the song - blame the Getty’s.
Christmas is without doubt my favourite time of the year - there is so much to smile about. At the same time it can be for some, a time of sadness. A reminder of a lost loved one…a time when those living with problems can feel isolated and forgotten.
It’s great to be reminded of the true impact of The Lord Jesus Christ being born in Bethlehem - He brings a Joy that is not defined by my circumstances or my good fortune. He brings a Joy that’s lasting and real - in fact it is Eternal and not impacted by how I feel.
The last verse of the carol reminds us why we celebrate Christmas. He was born for a reason - his life took him to the Cross because that was the plan even before the world was created.
Son of Adam, Son of heaven,
Given as a ransom;
Reconciling God and man,
Christ, our mighty champion!
What a Savior! What a Friend!
What a glorious mystery!
Once a babe in Bethlehem,
Now the Lord of history.
This Christmas take some time to find out the real meaning of Christmas - go along to a church, pick up a Bible and read about the mystery of God coming to live on this earth as a true man to reconcile man to God.
Once a babe in Bethlehem, Now the Lord of history!
