“A SONG IN THE AIR”

 


The Christmas season is a good time for reminiscing.  I enjoy thinking back on Christmas Eve at the Lutheran Church I attended from the time I was 5 years old until just after my 10th birthday.  After our children input and the service was over, we were given a bag of candy and an apple.  As soon as I got home the bag was opened and sweet pleasure took over.  I’m sure I shared with anyone who may have been there.  I got to reminiscing and decided to share with you what I wrote for the December 2000 Connection.


“A Song in the Air”


At Christmas “the air is filled with the sound of music.”  There is little doubt that “There’s A song in the Air.”  The voices of Christmas sing out “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing!---Glory to the New-born King!”  The violins play “What Child is This?” as pure and sweet as an angel sings to the beautiful melody of “Greensleeves”. 

This child, this Jesus, has come a long way.  Jesus left the stable in Bethlehem to take his place at the pinnacle of greatness.  The great choirs sing with the triumphant sounds of golden trumpets --- “Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace,” as they resound the message of Handel’s “Messiah”. 

The saddest part of Christmas is that so many people never let the baby in the manger become the Lord of their lives.  Many who profess Jesus as Christ their Lord and Savior remain but babes in the faith because they won’t let Christ grow to maturity in them.  My Christmas prayer is that all Christians will hear the song in the air that Christmas brings and arise from their self-imposed mangers and grow “in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men,” as did our Savior, Jesus Christ.



God Bless and Merry Christmas!
Fred
