Come Let Us Adore Him

“O come, all ye faithful
Joyful and triumphant
O come ye, o come ye to Bethlehem
Come and behold Him
Born the King of Angels!
O come, let us adore Him
O come, let us adore Him
O come, let us adore Him
Christ the Lord”
-“O Come All Ye Faithful”

“When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them.  But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.  The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.” Luke 2:17-20

From the moment Baby Jesus was born we have been called to glorify His name – to worship and adore Him. The wise men showed the first example of this by bowing down and worshiping the newborn King. Our purpose is to do the same. We show our adoration for Him through praise and worship and how we walk in our daily lives.

We welcome the Baby Jesus into the world every Christmas. We praise Him for coming into this world to save us. We glorify Him for conquering death on the cross and redeeming us. We will continue to exalt Him in Heaven. Those are just specific days and seasons. We need to remember to bow down and worship Him every day in between.

The words of this song are a beautiful invitation. We are invited to joyfully and triumphantly, in full celebration, behold and adore Christ the Lord. This isn’t something we should just be doing on Christmas morning, or at church on Sunday, but daily. Our adoration shouldn’t only be spoken, but also expressed through our actions.

So, come all ye faithful . . . let us adore Him.

“Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.” Psalm 100:2


Lord, just as the wise men came to adore and behold You, I will do the same. I will do it joyfully and triumphantly – not just during the Christmas season, but throughout the year. Let me worship You through words and deeds. Amen.
