Hark! The angels are singing

Posted on

Hark the herald angels sing
“Glory to the newborn King!

Peace on earth and mercy mild

God and sinners reconciled”

Joyful, all ye nations rise

Join the triumph of the skies

With the angelic host proclaim:

“Christ is born in Bethlehem”

Hark! The herald angels sing

“Glory to the newborn King!”

Christ by highest heav’n adored

Christ the everlasting Lord!

Late in time behold Him come

Offspring of a Virgin’s womb

Veiled in flesh the Godhead see

Hail the incarnate Deity

Pleased as man with man to dwell

Jesus, our Emmanuel

Hark! The herald angels sing

“Glory to the newborn King!”

Hail the heav’n-born Prince of Peace!
Hail the Son of Righteousness!

Light and life to all He brings

Ris’n with healing in His wings

Mild He lays His glory by

Born that man no more may die

Born to raise the sons of earth

Born to give them second birth

Hark! The herald angels sing

“Glory to the newborn King!”

That pretty much says it
May you have a blessed Christ -mas





Humiliation, Sacrifice, Resurrection

Posted on

Though Jesus was in the form of God, he did not regard equality with God something to be possessed by force. On the contrary, he emptied himself, in that he took the form of a slave by becoming like human beings are.

And when he appeared as a human being, he humbled himself still more by becoming obedient even to death – death on a stake as a criminal!

Therefore God raised him to the highest place and gave him the name above every name; that in honor of the name given Jesus, every knee will bow – in heaven, on earth and under the earth -

and every tongue will acknowledge that Jesus the Messiah is the Lord, Jehovah – to the glory of God the Father.

Jesus said, “I AM the Resurrection and the Life! Whoever puts his trust in me will live, even if he dies; and everyone living and trusting in me will never die.

I just finished reading a book the other day titled “Healing Grace” by David A. Seamands. The book ends with a story that sort of dramatically puts the whole premise of the book into crystal clear perspective. » Read More

George Washington Carver

You may think it odd that I have selected George Washington Carver as the subject of my very first blog. Why is an artist attracted to an agricultural chemist?
