This week Kim has been telling us how to prepare for Christmas, first by pondering and then by proclaiming. Click on the links to read her posts.
It is good to give credit where credit is due.
Let us ponder this Jesus, and what He did for us.
Let us proclaim the Good News of salvation.
Let us praise the One who made a way for us when there was no other way!
Mary praised God. (Luke 1:46-55)
Zechariah praised God. (Luke 1:64-79)
The angels praised God. (Luke 2:13-14)
The shepherds praised God. (Luke 2:20)
Simeon praised God. (Luke 2:25-32)
Anna praised God. (Luke 2:38)
If we’re following the example of the real life participants in the first Christmas, we will find that those anticipating Christ’s birth praised God and those who saw that the Promise had been fulfilled praised God.
One thing to take note of…they each praised Him audibly…out loud…in the hearing of others.
Shouldn’t we do the same?
