Hark! The Herald Angels Sing

person Rev. Dr. Chris Carrasco

Luke 2:8-12 With the angelic host proclaim, “Christ is born in Bethlehem!” Jesus Christ is, indeed, born this day as we celebrate the inbreaking of God into human existence. These three stanzas (although John Wesley wrote 5 verses) are rich in theological and biblical meaning as they articulate the significance of Jesus’ birth. This “Hymn for Christmas Day” (as it was originally titled) rings out with joy as we celebrate this special night. So let us join with the angels as we too sing, “Glory to the newborn King!” in this contemporary format with the praise team, communion, and candlelight. Reflection Questions: How is Jesus the King of your life? Have you been reconciled to God in Jesus Christ and if so, what does that mean to you? How does Jesus’ birth impact what you believe and how you live?
