Lord Jesus Christ,Lord of Lords and King of Kings, For you heavens high praises ring, yet you came to earth by humble birth, . In your name we see the purpose, to save us from our sins.
In your birth and early life you did not reveal your majesty, instead within a manger you lay and cried like any other child. And as you grew you lived as a normal child in your family.
It would have been interesting to see a perfect child having fun but that his hid from view. What we are told is that a child you sought your Father’s presence, you thought your earthly parents would realize your priorities when you stayed in the temple.
For thirty long years you lived in obscurity and yet each perfect decision was another stitch in the garment of righteousness you wanted to give to your people.
When the time for mission came it was only started because of the Father’s voice and the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Immediately you were in battle with the evil one and you triumphed in the wilderness.
You went about proclaiming the Kingdom of God and as you did you showed that kingdom by your healing power. the blind were healed, the dead were raised, demons were cast out and many other miracles you performed.
Jesus is your name and you came to save and therefore you steadfastly headed to Jerusalem, to be the only sacrifice that could save us from our sins. You died on that cross a horrible death, feeling that your Father had forsaken you.
At the time of death you cried out “it is finished”, the greatest shout of triumph this world has ever seen, the veil of the curtain was torn in two to show that we had access to the Father because of what you had accomplished.
Three days later the Father vindicated you by raising you from the dead, your fearful disciples were transformed by your grace. they became the heralds of good news to a lost and broken world.
Two thousand years later your disciples still know that you are the only saviour from sin. We worship you and give you the praise for what you have done. We want to see you glorified in the whole earth, so come renew your church by the power of your Spirit.
