Alleluia! Sing to Jesus!!!
 
…When the angels have gone away from them into heaven, that the shepherds said to one another “Let us now go to Bethlehem…” Luke 2:15
 
I recommend reading Luke 2 again.
The words for the Christmas carol, “What Child Is This?” were taken from a long poem written by William Dix in 1865. His father was a surgeon who wanted his son to follow in his footsteps. William had no interest in medicine. William left Bristol Grammar School and moved to Glasgow, England to sell insurance. William’s greatest love as his prose and poetry for Christ. He wrote two devotional books, a book for children, and scores of hymns. His other popular carol is “As with Gladness Men of Old.” All of Dix’s hymns should be more widely sung today, for they are masterpieces of poetry, filled with scriptural truth.
 
My prayer for the week:
Dear Lord, we sing Alleluia! to Your son, Jesus as He is our salvation. We are joyful for the great opportunity to serve you Lord. Help us to pray for all Your children and their daily spiritual and personal life needs. Glory to God! Amen
