Rest For the Weary

Christmas is coming and we sing the old favorite carols again. One of my favorites is, “It Came Upon A Midnight Clear”. It tells of the angels singing on that night when Jesus was born in Bethlehem. Wouldn’t you love to have heard that angel chorus? I wonder what it sounds like when angels sing? One day we will hear them.
My favorite verse of that old carol says,

And ye, beneath life’s crushing load,

Who’s forms are bending low,

Who toil along the climbing way

With painful steps and slow,

Look now! For glad and golden hours

Come swiftly on the wing

O rest beside the weary road,

And hear the angels sing!

Jesus came to heal creation of all infirmity, to heal it of sin, to heal it of death. In Revelation 21:5 He declares, “Behold I make all things new”. No more tears, no more pain.

Isaiah 40 says, “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.”

Let us renew our strength in the Lord, as we remember the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ the Messiah, who died for us, and who lives again and sits at the right hand of God.
Let us shake off our weariness and climb on, in the hope of the unseen promise. Let us be still and listen for the angels voices singing.
