Midnight Clear
by Chris Tomlin

The Apostle Paul says this world is groaning as in the pains of childbirth as we await our adoption as the children of God. (Romans 8:22-23) When the angels came to announce the birth of Jesus to Mary (Luke 1:26-38), Joseph (Matthew 1:18-23), and the shepherds (Luke 2:8-17), they knew the power of the message they bore. The deep longing for peace rising from this broken world was about to be satisfied.

The angels came to lowly people in out of the way places like Bethlehem, but the power of their message of hope rings on still. “The world in solemn stillness lay to hear the angels sing… still their heavenly music floats through all the weary world.” What is this heavenly song? It is the song announcing the birth of Jesus—God’s love song sung over us. Adore Christ for His unfailing love.
