Day 25: "O, Holy Night"
Lyrics: "O, Holy Night"
(You won't find this one in the 1991 Baptist Hymnal, either)
Questions for thought and discussion;
1. Why do you think a posture of kneeling or bowing is repeated so often in Scripture? Is there merit to that? Or is it just an ancient tradition we no longer need? Perhaps you would kneel in prayer today, maybe even bow down, face to the floor. Does that humble you?
2. Christmas night: when the Divine met the earthly as had never been seen before. Truly, the created had a first time opportunity (since Adam and Eve) to bow before the Creator. Do you see the beauty in this? What is your favorite character in the story? How did he or she demonstrate reverence and awe? How can that instruct your own worship.
3. Make plans to worship today, corporately or own your own. Expect to meet God the same way the Magi did. I think you will be surprised.
