Angels We Have Heard On High

Angels we have on heard high

Sweetly singing ore the plains

And the mountains in reply

Echoing their joyous strains

Gloria in Excelsis Deo

What gives you awe? What things cause you to become speechless when you see

them? Is it the sight of a family member you haven’t seen in years? Is it

visiting a majestic place like a mountain or a historical place like the ancient

pyramids of Egypt? The night Christ was born was the most monumental and

awe-inspiring event that as ever occurred in human history as God sent His one

and only Son to earth so that we could ultimately have eternal life.

There has not been an event in history before or after Christ’s birth that

resulted in such celebration that the angels themselves made their physical

presence known and their voices heard in song. Can you imagine how the

shepherds’ jaws must have dropped at the site and sounds of the angels? That

moment was so majestic that we probably cannot fully comprehend what it was like

because honestly, none of us have encountered such a sight.

It seems like people tend to have fewer experiences these days of complete awe.

Technology has brought so much of the world to our living rooms and fingertips

that we can see anything we want and feel like we are at anyplace we want to be.

Unfortunately, most of us probably have fewer awe-inspiring moments with God

like we should. Our relationship with Him often becomes too comfortable and even

ordinary.

This Christmas, make an attempt to regain those awe-inspiring moments with God.

Strive to make your relationship with Him something so inspiring that it causes

you to rejoice like the angels did. Don’t let your relationship with Him be

ordinary, but rather make it extraordinary.

Describe some of the awe-inspiring moments you’ve had with God. How have these

moments impacted you?

What changes do you need to make in your life so that you can start having more

awe-inspiring moments with God?
