Christmas Carols

We sang some Christmas carols tonight at team worship and I love how these songs really hit me differently here. Partially because this is the first time this year I'm hearing them. I haven't heard them on the radio, in the mall, on TV or anywhere else. And also because life here is a bit more like Jesus would have experienced it. So, I've been hearing some of the words afresh. I want to challenge you too to hear them afresh too.
How about this one:

Truly He taught us to love one another,
His law is love and His gospel is peace.
Chains he shall break, for the slave is our brother.
And in his name all oppression shall cease.

Or this one.....

No more let sins and sorrows grow,
Nor thorns infest the ground;
He comes to make His blessings flow
Far as the curse is found,

He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness,
And wonders of His love!

May the awe of what our Savior has done be prominent in your mind this week!! 
Merry Christmas!
