Christmas

The spirit of worship changes considerably from Advent to Christmas. Now the message echoes that of the angels, “A child is born….glory to God in the highest”.  The entire event, whether a day (December 25) or a season (through January 5) has its own built in spirit of celebration. We  enter the event and the meaning of the incarnation of Jesus Christ. The prophecies have been fulfilled; the Messiah is born; and the Savior of the world has arrived.  So we express our joy, embrace God’s presence in Jesus Christ, and eagerly anticipate other celebrations to come, particularly Easter, his Ascension, and the outpouring of the Spirit at Pentecost.

Some possible Psalms to use during Christmas:

Psalm 68
Psalm 97
Psalm 98
Psalm 102
Psalm 147
Psalm 148
