Today is Sunday and it is a very exciting day at Sharon MBC! Today is our Christmas cantata and it should be a wonderful day! My hope and prayer is that you are planning on worshiping your Lord and Savior today!
I am looking forward to bringing a short message after the cantata and then tonight relaxing and enjoying hearing the Christmas story through the hearts and minds of our young people. If your wondering how that is going to go, then come back tonight at 6 p.m. It will be a pretty cool service, by the way, it will be in our fellowship hall tonight!
8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. 10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. 12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
14 Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace,
Good will toward men.
The Holy Bible: King James Version. (Luke 2:8–14)
Can you imagine what that cantata was like! When the angels were praising God, the shepherds were in for a treat! Even the sheep were in AWE! But it won't be anything compared to the praising that will happen when all of God's saints get up there and we begin to shout and sing praise to the Lord! We have a reason to sing the angels don't understand! We will not be hindered by this "old flesh" anymore! MY WHAT A CANTATA THAT WILL BE!
