Christmas Awe

Bible in a Year: Amos 4–6, Revelation 7

Let all God’s angels worship him.
Hebrews 1:6

Today's Scripture & Insight: Hebrews 1:1–9

I was in London one night for a meeting. It was pouring rain, and I was late. I rushed through the streets, turned a corner, and then stopped still. Dozens of angels hovered above Regent Street, their giant shimmering wings stretching across the traffic. Made of thousands of pulsing lights, it was the most amazing Christmas display I’d seen. I wasn’t the only one captivated. Hundreds lined the street, gazing up in awe.

Awe is central to the Christmas story. When the angel appeared to Mary explaining she would miraculously conceive (Luke 1:26–38), and to the shepherds announcing Jesus’ birth (2:8–20), each reacted with fear, wonder—and awe. Looking around at that Regent Street crowd, I wondered if we were experiencing in part what those first angelic encounters felt like.

A moment later, I noticed something else. Some of the angels had their arms raised, as if they too were gazing up at something. Like the angelic choir that burst into song at the mention of Jesus (vv. 13–14), it seems angels too can be caught up in awe—as they gaze on Him.

“The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being” (Hebrews 1:3). Bright and luminous, Jesus is the focus of every angel’s gaze (v. 6). If an angel- themed Christmas display can stop busy Londoners in their tracks, just imagine the moment when we see Him face-to-face.

Reflect & Pray
When was the last time you felt a sense of awe? How can you rekindle a sense of awe over Jesus this Christmastime?


Father, I worship You. Thank You for the gift of Your awesome Son.

CAN SATAN RIGHTLY ACCUSE YOU?
Open Heavens

CAN SATAN RIGHTLY ACCUSE YOU?

Besides discouragement, another weapon Satan uses often against believers is their weaknesses. He simply studies an individual for a period of time and not long after, he identifies the fellow’s weakness and capitalizes on it. Take for instance Peter. Satan discovered that Peter is a cowardly person-lacking in...More

What message do the sects bring?

Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.

Matthew 23:10; 1 Timothy 2:5-6
