Songs of Christmas

Title: Zechariah’s Song: Breaking the Prophetic Silence

Text: Luke 1:67-80

The Advent of Jesus was and is a catalyst for singing and poetry. From the announcement to the advent, we hear singing and poetry from young women, old men, and even angels. Today we consider Zechariah’s song – the Father of John the Baptist. After hundreds of years of prophetic silence and now after Zechariah’s enforced silence of many months, he breaks out in song of expectant praise to God at the birth of John: our God keeps his promises!

God’s glory is the announcement of his costly peace with us!

Songs of Christmas

Title: John Sings Too!

Text: Luke 3:4-6

The Advent of Jesus was and is a catalyst for singing and poetry. From the announcement to the advent, we hear singing and poetry from young women, old men, and even angels. Today we consider John the Baptist’s ‘song,’ who, like his Father before him (Zechariah) sings out the news of the salvation of God. John ‘sings’ the words of Isaiah’s prophesy about the coming Messiah. These words declare the coming of God’s Salvation. Are you singing this song in the year to come?
