Christmas Praise

My soul magnifies the Lord . . .

  Luke 1:46

Hark! The Herald Angels Sing! Joy to the World! Silent Night. O Holy Night. Away in a Manger. O Come, O Come Emmanuel. The list could go on. We love singing songs at Christmas. We sing because Christmas is a time to celebrate, a time to praise God for sending His Son.

You cannot read the Christmas story without hearing the songs and praises of God’s people. You can read Mary’s song, known as the Magnificat, in Luke 1:46–55, or read Zechariah’s song in Luke 1:67–79, or read of the multitude of angel’s singing at Christ’s birth in Luke 2:13–14. At the birth of Christ, the shepherds worshipped Jesus (Luke 2:20), as did the Magi (Matthew 2:11). When you consider all that God has given us in Christ, praise is the proper response. He is worthy of all our worship.
