On the eleventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me……Ah, tis the season for shopping and baking. Christmas parties at work, school, church. Outreaches to the community, Salvation Army bell ringers, Angel trees, coat and canned food drives. I led worship last night for the senior high students at my church. My dad was speaking about the angels in the Christmas story and how they were the “messengers”. He challenged the students at the end that we have been told this amazing story of Christmas. It’s our job to give that story away to someone else. Today, December 11th, I want to challenge you by asking “Who in your life can you tell this story of Christmas? Who can you give the gift of Jesus to this Christmas season? It’s easy for us to think about right now as we’re in the season but it’s a question we should ask ourselves all year long. We are messengers to tell His story everyday with everyone.
“O Come All Ye Faithful” is definitely the worship anthem of Christmas. More than any other carol we sing this one truly is a song of worship. That’s why I’m sure at church and many events you’ll attend this season you’ll sing the words “O come let us adore Him, O come let us adore Him, O come let us adore Him Christ the Lord”. The song was immediately on my list of songs to record for the CD. I’ve always enjoyed singing and leading others in this song because at the end of every day, and at the end of our lives all that really matters is if took part in “adoring Christ the Lord” by the things we did and said. The way we treated others…did we make His story glorified? Whatever you’re doing today I hope you’ll take a moment to worship our Savior. He was born as a baby so He could be the sacrifice for our sins. We have hope, peace, joy and love because of what Jesus has done for us. He is Christ the Lord and deserves every ounce of praise we can give.
