Advent Word 8 - Worthy

Posted by Bethany Nelson on

When the people heard that the long-awaited Messiah was coming, many thought this Messiah would be a great ruler. Perhaps a military general who would vanquish their enemies. Instead what they got was a baby born in a manger. Some people understood right away the importance of this baby. The shepherds knew he was special. The magi knew this baby would be life-changing. But I’m sure many were wondering … Is this baby worthy? Is this Jesus worthy of our glory, honor, and praise?

Check out our Facebook page (Westminster Pres-Tiburon) for a short song about today’s word, “worthy.” The lyrics are –

Is He Worthy? By Peterson and Shive

Do you feel the world is broken?

Do you feel the shadows deepen?

But do you know that all the dark won’t stop the light from getting through?

Do you wish that you could see it all made new?

We do.

Is all creation groaning?

Is a new creation coming?

Is the glory of the Lord to be the light within our midst?

Is it good that we remind ourselves of this?

It is.

Is He worthy, is He worthy of all blessing and honor and glory?

Is He worthy of this?

He is.

Does the Creator truly love us?

Does the Spirit move among us?

And does Jesus, our Messiah, hold forever those He loves?

Does our God intend to dwell again with us?

God does.

Is He worthy, is He worthy of all blessing and honor and glory?

Is He worthy of this?

He is.
