In this most holy of weeks, we present an extra devotional for your Fourth Sunday in Advent
Reading: Isaiah 42: 10-18
Reflection: At this time of the Advent season many people are tired of hearing all the Christmas music, and it is not even Christmas yet. The radio stations have been playing it for so long that by the day after Christmas they stop. Don’t they realize that there are twelve days of Christmas? I am pretty sure they have that song somewhere in their collections. I think all the Christmas music helps me get in the mood and helps me celebrate. I personally could listen to Christmas music all year long. I have enough Christmas music that I never have to listen to the same CDs over and over again. In fact sometimes when I pack away my Christmas music I still have some CDs that I have not listened to.
As we read Isaiah 42:10-18 we hear about singing to the Lord a new song. We are to praise him to the ends of the earth. As the verses continue on there is a lot of praising, singing, and joy! We are to give glory to God. Christmas is a great time to sing out. Even if you are tired of hearing Christmas music I say let it ring out! Music is a way that can truly give you the feeling of the season. It is a way the whole world can celebrate Jesus’ coming. As I just heard in a child’s Christmas song by David Huntsinger; “All of the earth and all of heaven rejoice, sing and rejoice! Shout for joy, heaven and earth. Celebrate the Savior’s birth. All of the earth and all of heaven rejoice, sing and rejoice!” The angels are going to sing out their Glorias to the Lord. Let us join them in lifting our voices. Let us sing and rejoice! --Charlene Rineer, Camp Mount Luther Assistant Director
