Hark the Herald Mall Muzic
December 7, 2011
I heard it amongst the hustle and bustle of the season, in the commercial clamour of a shopping mall. My mind was a million miles away as I rushed about my day, and I really wasn’t prepared for it, but I heard it anyway. Above the busyness of the day, and through the fog of my daze, the words slowly broke through, “Oh come let us adore him, Christ the Lord!”
One of my favourite things about going into the Christmas season is knowing that for the next month the world will willingly do what they would have problems with the church doing; publicly and loudly proclaiming that Jesus is Lord. Songs of praise and adoration will be sung about Jesus in the most unlikely places by the most unlikely people, and they’ll enjoy it. I think that’s a hoot. What a great opportunity it is for believers to remind people what they are singing about and what they are celebrating.
The Angel told the shepherds “I bring you good news of great joy for everyone!” 2000 years later the news is still good, the joy is still great, and you will be somebody’s angel if you just take the time let them know.
Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
