The 2021 Christmas Series: We Have Seen His Glory
-Marina Bromley, Meeting in the Meadow
Every few months Roy and I pray and plan about what we want to share with you, our friends and readers, throughout the year. This year Roy thought it would especially timely to share his series, We Have Seen the Glory.The series was originally written in four sections; Adore Him, Seek Him, Thank Him and Praise Him. To make it easier to read across our social media platforms (our blog, Facebook, and Instagram) we have broken it down into 12 parts, three for each of the four sections. As you read them in order you will find yourself on a journey preparing your heart to completely celebrate the birth of Jesus on Christmas Day. That is our earnest prayer.
We have just brought our hearts to Him full of Thanksgiving, and we want to use that as our foundation as we move towards Christmas. Join us as we take time in devotion to God and traveling together into We Have Seen the Glory.
Blessings to you in this season of celebrations!
Marina, for Roy and Meeting in the Meadow
We Have Seen His Glory: Adore Him, Part 1
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
He is thy Lord; and worship thou Him. Psalm 45:11 KJV
On a natural level, the worship of Jesus as a baby didn’t make sense. His life was still untested and unproven. He had not yet said anything, nor had He done anything that would substantiate Him as Messiah. His birthplace gave no indication of His royalty; the economic status of his parents spoke nothing of His influence or power; and His bed of hay spoke nothing of His kingly throne or crown.
The true worship of Jesus was not based on what was seen with natural eyes, but instead, on what was seen with spiritual eyes. With the eyes of faith, the true worshiper saw who Jesus was, why He had come, and where He had come from.
They worshiped because the tiny babe in the manger was the Son of God.
He was the One who was there at the beginning, speaking into existence the heavens, the earth, and all that lives upon it. He was the One who knew eternal fellowship with His Father in heaven, and He was the One who was adored by the entire heavenly host.
