Thought for the week

Christmas Night Songs: "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear"

Then the angel said to [the shepherds], "Do not be afraid....For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord."
Luke 2:10-11

Recommended Reading
John 12:20-21


Many residents of metropolitan areas rarely see the glory of the stars against a clear, midnight sky. Light pollution from streetlights, neon signs, and commercial districts washes out the brightness of the stars against their backdrop.

But there was no light pollution outside ancient Bethlehem. The shepherds would have been awash in the glory of the heavens when an even greater glory appeared to them: an angel accompanied by an angelic choir. As clear as the night sky was the angel's message: "Born to you this day in the city of David [is] a Savior, who is Christ the Lord." There is much cultural "pollution" at Christmas that can wash away the clarity of the Christmas message if we allow it. Our voice must remain as clear as the angel's: The One born at Christmas is the Savior--Christ the Lord.

Be clear this Christmas about the reason for the season. Don't allow the bright lights to wash out your vision of the Savior

Ain't that the truth. Too many brite lights in the big cities....blocks out all the beauty of a pure night sky like we have in the country.
