Newsletter December 2019


During Christmas, the secular world is much more receptive to the things of God.  No where is this clearer than in Christmas music.  Sprinkled in with the Frosty the Snowman and Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer, you find an abundance of clear Biblical hymns that announce the birth of the Jesus.  Words like “Messiah” and “Emmanuel” are on the lips of nearly everyone.  And while God seems to be marginalized more and more in society, Christmas has remained a place where all people have embraced religion.   
I can’t help but think that it would be different if people really understood what they were singing.  Most people recite Christmas lyrics mindlessly and never consider the words that they are singing.  Sadly, many Christians also sing these beautiful songs without considering the rich Biblical truth they contain.  I mean, how can we not be moved singing:  
“O holy Child of Bethlehem!  Descend to us we pray, Cast out our sin, and enter in; be born in us today.”
O Little Town of Bethlehem  
This month, we’ll be looking at four different Christmas songs and the Scriptures that they teach.  I hope you’ll use this month as an opportunity to talk to your friends and family about Christ and the impact his coming at Christmas has had on your life and salvation.
