No matter how you choose to celebrate Christ this season, let the Messiah–not the mayhem–reign in your quiet Christ-focused heart.
Read: Luke 2:13—14
13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
14 “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”
Reflect: While there’s no definition of what “a great company of the heavenly host” looks like in Scripture, it’s probably no chancel choir. Isaiah 6:3 speaks of the seraphim who surround the throne and call to each other, “Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of His glory.” His favor of salvation rests on you and that is reason enough to praise Him and cry, “Glory to God in the highest heaven!”
Respond: Holy, holy, holy, are you Lord Almighty! Glory to God in the highest! You are worthy to be praised and I continually proclaim Your name.
Tot Time: Talk about what praise means and then teach about how we praise God and can also praise and encourage those around us.
