Christmas Music

We hear about the first Christmas Cantata or musical in Luke 2:8-15.

 8 And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” 13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, 14 “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”15 When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”

Enjoy the sounds of Christmas this year.  Don’t forget to sing what the angels did 2,000 years ago, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.” It doesn’t make any difference if you have a good voice or not. Sing with your heart and your life. Give God the praise He deserves.

Have a good, Godly, and joyful day.
