Come, thou long expected Jesus

image001

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.

Born thy people to deliver, born a child and yet a King, born to reign in us forever, now thy gracious kingdom bring.

And you were dead in your trespasses and sins … like the rest of mankind. But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ … so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. (Ephesians 2:1-10)

As we move throughout our week, let’s think on Jesus, who was born to set us free from sin and fear. Who was born both a child and King. Who was born to show almighty God’s immeasurable riches of grace in kindness toward us.

These last days before Christmas, let’s sing with full hearts, “Come, thou long expected Jesus!”

About Jill

I'm a wife, mom to three beautiful children, and currently work at two jobs for which I'm very grateful -- part-time at my kids' school, and as children's ministry director at Redeemer PCA in Athens, GA, a place our family treasures as our church home. It's been thirty years since the Lord saved me, and to this day I'm astounded at His steadfast love shed upon unfaithful me. My hope would be that I might speak and write in ways God would use to soften hearts toward Him, that we would together be enamored by the glorious beauty of Jesus and awakened to His love unimagined. Thanks so much for reading!
