December 24 – He Is Coming
Our Lord, Thou art here. Let us feel thy nearness.
Yes! but remember the first Hail must be that of the Magi in the Bethlehem stable. Not as King and Lord in Heavenly triumph must you first hail Me. But as amongst the lowliest, bereft of earth’s pomp like the Magi.
So to the humble the worship of humility — the Bethlehem Babe — must be the first Hail.
Then the worship of repentance. As earth’s sinner, you stand by Me in the Jordan, baptized of John, worshiping Me the Friend and Servant of sinners.
Dwell much on My Life. Step out beside Me. Share it with Me. Humility, Service, Worship, Sacrifice, Sanctification — Steps in the Christian Life.
“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we
beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,)
full of grace and truth.” John 1:14
