Fourth Sunday of Advent / Christmas Eve

Week of: December 24, 2017
Scripture: Luke 1:46b-55, Psalm 96

With all my heart I glorify the Lord!
(Luke 1:46b, CEB)

Sing to the Lord a new song!
(Psalm 96:1, CEB)

Devotion

Mary, the mother of the promised Savior, will sing her song, the Magnificat, this Advent Sunday morning. She is just beginning her long Advent journey of HOPE, LOVE, JOY and yes, PEACE. With the daunting task of giving birth to the hope of Israel, it is amazing how she sings gloriously with the confidence of peace.

On Sunday night, the Eve of Christmas, Psalm 96 gives us a “new song” to sing. Our Advent worship journey has been completed. We can now celebrate the coming of the One to whom we have offered our gifts of worship this season. How can we not sing a “new song”?

Prayer

Holy Christ Child, you have come to give us PEACE so that we might sing, dance, play, visualize, dramatize and preach a glorious new song. Grant us the confidence of Mary to always magnify your name. Amen.
