The King Approaches

Have you ever really considered the details of Christmas?  This week in Sunday school my class took time to think about the particulars of the birth of Christ: the sights (of Angels, but also of rats and an Inn with no room), the smells (animals, blood, sweat, frankenscence), the sounds (praises sung, but also the cries of a mother in labor), the feel (of straw and dirt, and the cold touch of gold), the taste (of cool air, of stale bread). 

…The coming of our King of Kings, of Emmanuel: God with us wasn’t as beautiful as we’d like to imagine it.  That said, it was incredible… and we are so thankful.

 Consider this video (thank you Adam Stricker): The Christmas Tale  

 Psalm 24:7-10

Lift up your heads, O gates!
   and be lifted up, O ancient doors!
   that the King of glory may come in.
Who is the King of glory?
   The Lord, strong and mighty,
   the Lord, mighty in battle.
Lift up your heads, O gates!
   and be lifted up, O ancient doors!
   that the King of glory may come in. 
Who is this King of glory?
   The Lord of hosts,
   he is the King of glory.

There are 2 weeks until we worship at the feet of our newborn King- are we ready?
