Throughout the course of the year I see a number of patients who have fallen on their knees. Sometimes it's just a stumble through frailty or carelessness and at others it's the consequences of vigourous sport. But never is it deliberate and 'meaningful'. At Christmas I love hearing the carol O holy night with it's beautiful line, fall on your knees and before Him lowly bend in response to the Christ child.
At Christmas we are reminded that all of us are incurably worshipping creatures. Whatever we give ultimate worth and value to-it is that which we worship. It's subtle and some of us don't like to admit it but whether its family, status, comfort, independence-you name it we find things to 'take God's place'.
Join me in falling on your knees before the King of Kings, as Beccy Pippert reminds 'he is the only Lord in the universe who can control us without destroying us'. Listen to this great version and worship Christ the new born King.
