Let Heaven and Nature Sing ~ and People Too!

At Christmas we sing songs that remind us of the gift of Christ. When Christmas is over, do we still sing? 

Do you still sing?

Choosing to sing about God's great gifts and His divine glory isn't about how well you can sing, it is about making a joyful noise. In Luke 19, Jesus told the Pharisees that if his disciples kept quiet, the rocks would cry out. The disciples had been joyfully singing because of all the miracles they had seen. The Pharisees were livid.

Note to the wise: while our country isn't filled with those same Pharisees today, there are still going to be people who tell you to pipe down and be quiet when it comes to praising God. You are going to have to decide for yourself what to do. Remember Peter in Acts 5? He said "We must obey God rather than men."

Come, join in the song! Spread the good news of Christ's redemptive work on the cross. Pray for those in your life who do not seem to hear the song. God is calling them, pray that they would hear, and answer!

For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities - His eternal power and divine nature - have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. Romans 1:20.
