“Dayspring Come Shine on Us “ Sunday, 28 November

This Sunday we will be starting a new series “Christmas Carols: the message is in the music.”

Every year we sing the Christmas Carols, we may even know them by heart, but do we understand who wrote them, why they were written, what was the inspiration behind them and how do they inspire us today?

 There is deep theological meaning in many of these older carols that sometimes escapes our attention, we glibly sing the words but really don't know what we're singing. So, in this series, I want to reveal some of the great Bible teachings that exist in the Christmas carol lyrics.

Charles Wesley was the eighteenth child of Susanna Wesley and Samuel Wesley. He was born in Lincolnshire, England, where his father was rector. In 1744, Charles Wesley considered Haggai 2:7 and looked at the situation of orphans in the areas around him. He also looked at the class divide in Great Britain. Through this train of thought, he wrote "Come, Thou long expected Jesus" based upon Haggai 2:7 and a published prayer at the time which had the words:

"Born Your people to deliver, born a child and yet a King, born to reign in us forever, now Your gracious kingdom bring. By Your own eternal Spirit, rule in all our hearts alone; by Your all sufficient merit, raise us to Your glorious throne. Amen."

This little Baby born in obscurity will one day rule the entire universe. He rules and reigns today spiritually in the lives of His followers who have the eternal spirit within them. And one day He will return, govern and rule physically on this earth, upon the throne of His father David. And He will reign forever and ever.
