For many of us the “Music of Christmas” is just as much a part of the celebration as the gift itself. For generations believers have celebrated both in song and with song.
As we continue our “Long Awaited” Christmas season here at UABC, this morning we will be led in Worship by our Young-At-Heart Choir. At various times during the year this choir performs and shares the Gospel of Christ at several Assisted Living facilities and Nursing Homes in the Memphis area. Just like many of us, for our choir this is a very busy time of year. They have shared this music many times already since Thanksgiving and they will be preforming a few more times before Christmas.
A song at Christmas is a small gesture to point towards a huge sacrifice and gift. The gift that was given to you and I is a gift that will last for an eternity if only you accept. As we continue reading the Christmas Story from both the Old and New Testament, know that if God can use a small town like Bethlehem as a part of His plan and story, He can even use a song, you and this congregation to accomplish His purpose!
