Joy to the World

In 1719, Isaac Watts penned the words to Joy to the World. My favorite lines are:

Let Earth Receive Her King

No more let sins and sorrows grow
Nor thorns infest the ground
He comes to make his blessings flow
Far as the curse is found

He rules the world with truth and grace
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness
And wonders of His love.

This Christmas season may we rejoice anew at our King, at the glories of His righteousness and the wonders of His love.

For His love? It's the greatest wonder we'll ever know. Our soul aches to worship our King.

Set aside the to-do list long enough to worship your King, every day. Be still and know. Let your soul do what God designed it to do.

There is no peace when we fail to worship the Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 9:6"...For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace."
