Passage: Hebrews 12:28–12:29

Title: O Come Let Us Adore Him
Text: Hebrews 12:28-29

Notes:

O Come Let Us Adore Him:
    -Latin “Adeste Fideles”
    -John Francis Wade (1744), Frederick Oakely (1841)

Adore (verb):
    1) To regard with utmost esteem, love, respect, and honor.
    2) To pay divine honor to, to worship.

The right response to Christ’s birth is worship.

We are guilty:
    -Good worship of a bad god.
    -Bad worship of a good God.

Gratitude is the gateway to worship.

Guidelines for worship:
    1) Worship with awe.
        -Awe (Phobos), reverential fear.
    2) Worship with Abandon.
    3) Worship with intimacy.

Worship isn’t based on feelings- feelings follow obedience.
