Let’s Adore Him
Gwen Smith

Today’s Truth
On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him.  Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold and of incense and of myrrh  (Matthew 2:11 NIV).

Friend to Friend

O come, all ye faithful,

Come everyone! Come sinners! Come saints!
Come if you’re tired, hungry, lonely, or faint!

“Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth.  He will not grow tired or weary, and His understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not faint” (Isaiah 40:28-31).

Joyful and triumphant;

Come with rejoicing! Come celebrate!
We worship the One who is mighty and great!

“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!” (Philippians 4:4).

O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem!

Come home-school mom! Come business pro! Come friend, wife, sister, and daughter!
Let’s bow down low and worship Him. Praise Son, Holy Spirit, and Father!

“Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place and gave Him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:9-11).

Come and behold Him – born the King of Angels!

Behold His majesty! Behold the matchless King! 
Behold the holy One! Behold the saving Son! 
He is the One deserving praise.
He is the Lord of night and day. 
He is the God who reigns on high.
He is our holy Adonai.

“The next day he saw Jesus coming to him and said, "Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!”  (John 1:29 NASB).

O come, let us adore Him
O come, let us adore Him
O come, let us adore Him – Christ the Lord!

Let’s Pray
Lord Jesus, Words can’t begin to express the gratefulness in my heart as I pause to adore You! Thank you for putting on a garment of humanity to rescue me from my sin.  You are holy and righteous and worthy of my praise. I bow before you today in humble adoration. I love You, Jesus and pray in Your name. Amen.

Now It’s Your Turn
Sing to the King!  Pause to sing this song of worship (either out loud or in your soul) to our deserving Lord and connect with Him in spirit and in truth.  I’ll start: “O come, all ye faithful…”

Make a list of 12 reasons that Jesus is worthy of your adoration.

LISTEN to this song, Holy Adonai, which is posted on my facebook page today. ( as a final heart-focused portion of our time together.  Adore Him!
