DAY 18 Let His Reign Begin

DAY 18 Let His Reign Begin

 And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.  And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.  Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. (Colossians 3:14-16)

“Born to reign in us forever” This Christmas, let Christ begin to reign over the dominion of your heart.  When He is rightly seated on the throne of our heart, our lives are showered with his peace.  His peace which “passes all understanding.”  When Christians face the onslaught of the materialistic hijacking of Christmas, the chorus is sung, “Let’s put Christ back into Christmas.”  But I say, “Let’s save him from Christmas and place him on the throne of our heart.”  For this is the place he desires to be.

COME THOU LONG EXPECTED JESUS

 Come Thou long expected Jesus

Born to set Thy people free

From our fears and sins release us

Let us find our rest in Thee

 

Israel’s strength and consolation

Hope of all the earth Thou art

Dear desire of every nation

Joy of every longing heart

 

Born Thy people to deliver

Born a child and yet a King

Born to reign in us forever

Now Thy gracious kingdom bring

 

By Thine own eternal spirit

Rule in all our hearts alone

By Thine all sufficient merit

Raise us to Thy glorious throne
