Oh Come Let Us Adore Him

by Art Arruda

This is a short Christmas eCard that my daughter and I made some 12 years ago. Ah, twelve years... where did the time go? As I get older I realize how fast this life passes by. The good Word is right when it says:

"What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes." James 4:14

When I think of Jesus, how He put aside the glory He had with His Father to be born a helpless baby, how He lived a perfect life, and because of His great love, how He died in my place for my sins, I can only say with the hymn writer:

And when I think that God, His Son not sparing
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in;

Someday, this One who came the first time as a little baby will come again in power to judge the world. Life is short, but if you're reading this it's not too late to do what the Lord said in His own words:

The time has come," he said. "The kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe the good news!" -Mark 1:15

If you have done this, then rejoice and come let us adore Him!
May the Lord bless you and yours this Christmas season.
