“Show us your power
Come to rescue us!
Turn us again to yourself, O LORD God
of Heaven’s Armies.
Make your face shine down upon us.
Only then will we be saved.”
from Psalm 80 (NLT)
I’m thinking about those last two lines today: “Make your face shine down upon us. Only then will we be saved.” The story of Christmas is that God’s face does shine down on us – in the person of Jesus, who lives to be our salvation. Amen.
