There is a Christmas carol written by James Montgomery and Henry Smart titled ‘Angels From the Realms of Glory’.  Each of the four verses has a different theme.

    Verse one talks of the angels and the job in the proclamation of the birth of Jesus.  Verse two tells of the announcement that the shepherds received.  Verse three addresses the wise men and their instructions to seek the Child.  The last verse tells us of the sudden and long hoped for second coming of Jesus.  The words of the song give a total, but brief description of the birth of Jesus and how we are to view it.

    It is the refrain on each verse, however, to which we need to pay the most attention.  “Come and worship, come and worship, worship Christ the new born king.”  It tells what our reaction to Jesus should be.  It makes no difference what our lot in life may be, nor how good or bad we may think we are, nor even our beliefs.  We are all called to worship Jesus the Christ, the only begotten Son of God who came to earth to die for our sins.
