SING TO THE LORD

Fourth Midweek Advent Devotion

Sing to the LORD a New Song; sing to the LORD all the earth.
Sing to the LORD, praise his name; proclaim his salvation day after day.      Psalm 96

Christmas carols play over the radio; choirs sing in nursing homes; bells ring in shopping malls; and God’s people sing. We sing because the Savior born in Bethlehem gives us a new song to sing and new life to live. On Christmas eve we will sing, “Joy to the Lord, the Lord has come.” That song is based on Psalm 96 (up above). To prepare for that song this Advent, we will use a number of Psalms, the song book of the Old Testament to focus on the One who is to come, the child who causes us to sing a new song to the Lord.
