Current sermon series "What does God Want?"
Faithful Through the Ages
The book of Psalms in God’s word is filled with some of the most beautiful and powerful songs ever written. I myself like to write songs, and people have asked me, who is one my favorite song writers? I will usually say king David from the Bible, however, there are passages of scripture in other books of the Bible that contain songs as well. Since we are approaching Christmas, I feel this one is very fitting to talk about, and it happens to be one of my favorites! Also, I want to give you a little sample of what we are going to be studying on Wednesday nights starting in January!!!
Mary sings this song to God during her visit with Elizabeth after she is told by the Angel Gabriel that she is going to give birth to the Messiah, the Savior of the world, Jesus Christ. Mary is overwhelmed with joy because the promise God made to Abraham was being fulfilled, and that God saw fit to use her to bring that promise into the world. This was the promise God made. “Genesis 12:1-3 The Lord had said to Abram, Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you. I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you”. If you look at our Lords' genealogy, there are forty-two generations from Abraham to Joseph and Mary. That’s how long this promise was talked about and passed down. This time of the year we recognize the birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ. There is always that discussion of whether or not Jesus was born around this time of the year. More than likely going by what was happening in the account, it’s not, but that’s not really the point is it? The point is Jesus was born!! “Luke 2:10-11 But the angel said to them, Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord”. In the culture around us Christmas is just another holiday. It’s a holiday that is represented by a lot of things and some of those things aren’t necessarily bad. I hope as believers the reason we celebrate Christmas is very different than why the world celebrates Christmas, and that what’s under the tree doesn’t become more important than who was under the star that clear beautiful night!! May we always humble ourselves before God and bring Him praise for He is faithful through the ages!!!
