Our hymn of the month is Hark the Herald Angels sing, and Charles Wesley penned such rich truth in it. Let’s take a look, as I paraphrase. Listen up, the angel messengers sing: “Glory to the newborn King! Peace on earth. Mercy mild. God and sinners reconciled. We know that He did this at the cross, making peace with us there. So the song goes on to call the nations to joyfully rise and join the angels glorifying the King. Proclaim Him born in Bethlehem. Proclaim Him the king.
Let us confess that we are slow to rise joyfully and praise Him. That we continue to sow discord by our sin instead of peace. That we try to glorify ourselves instead of King Jesus.
