One of our worship leaders sang Matt Redmans Heart of Worship this week and changed the lyrics to “I’m coming back to the heart of Christmas and it’s all about you, all about you Jesus”.
Once the interruption to my ‘auto-worship’ mode had settled, the stinging truth of that one-word alteration began to settle in my heart. And though the lyric change seemed a little twee, even cheesy, at first, it challenged me to the core again, and focused my worship anew. And I’m thankful for our worship leader stepping out to make that change.
And when planning for our Christmas services, I came across this clip from the movie The Nativity Story, which again moved me to worship, and to focus on Jesus once again during this festive time. This clip, I believe, is conveyed in a very reverent, worshipful way and hope it moves you to thank God for Jesus again, as it did me.
Remember why we celebrate Christmas, and take a moment to turn your heart back to Him!
