Wednesday, Third Week of Advent: Joy
December 18, 2013

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.  Serve the Lord with gladness; come before His presence with singing.  Psalm 100:1-2

Music started long before people could read and write to record events in their lives.  The oldest civilized people believed that music had come from heaven and was sent to them by the gods.

Religion has inspired some of the world’s most beautiful music and is crucial to the worship of God.  We feel happiness and joy when we gather together to sing our wonderful hymns and hear our choir specials.

Music about the birth of Jesus reminds us of the angels who sang to announce that moment in history.  As we approach Advent season and sing carols once again, let us make a joyful noise.!

Prayer:  Lord, may we always lift our voices in praise of your name.  Amen.
