Come Thou Long Expected Jesus

December 2, 2018 Speaker: Gordon Wright Series: Christmas Carols

Topic: Sunday Gathering Passage: Genesis 3:14–3:15

We begin our festive series by unpacking the lyrics of 'Come Thou Long Expected Jesus,' originally written in 1744 by Charles Wesley, since reimagined by the excellent Kings Kaleidoscope, and now firmly established as a Centrepoint favourite!

Come Thou long expected Jesus
Born to set Thy people free
From our fears and sins release us
Let us find our rest in Thee

So what does it mean that Jesus is 'long expected,' and why does it matter?  Discover how the Christmas story is the unfolding of an ancient promise - and how the birth of Jesus changes everything!
