Today’s song is my personal favorite Christmas carol, “O Holy Night.” It’s performed here by Kari Jobe. Take a listen:

Everyone’s really familiar with the first verse of this song, but I love the second. It’s a personal reminder to me that Christ’s call to us was to love one another. In the process, we see freedom discovered, chains broken, lives changed. But it all began with one fateful night in Bethlehem. It was truly divine; angels appearing to shepherds, a virgin giving birth to a child, wise men moving at the sight of a star.
Today, I hope that this song is an invitation to us all to take a step back, consider what happened on that Christmas night many years ago, and give thanks for the God who chose to step in and save our world in the process!
