Inspired by . . . A Season in Scripture VIII

A Psalm. Oh sing to the LORD a new song, for He has done marvelous things! His right hand and His holy arm have worked salvation for Him. 
   The LORD has made known His salvation; He has revealed His righteousness in the sight of the nations. 
   He has remembered His steadfast love and faithfulness to the house of Israel. 
   All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God. 
   Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth; break forth into joyous song and sing praises! Sing praises to the LORD with the lyre, with the lyre and the sound of melody! With trumpets and the sound of the horn make a joyful noise before the King, the LORD! 
   Let the sea roar, and all that fills it; the world and those who dwell in it! Let the rivers clap their hands; let the hills sing for joy together before the LORD, for He comes to judge the earth. 
   He will judge the world with righteousness, and the peoples with equity. (Psa 98:1-9)

Psalm 98 reads like a Christmas song to me this morning. Maybe it's just me or maybe its because this time of year every song seems to say, "Merry Christmas"

Or, perhaps, its because these verses reveal the very heart of what we are waiting for, what we are celebrating this time of the year.

Jesus is the marvelous thing that the Lord has done! For us! 

The little baby boy is His righteousness revealed! For us!

In the arrival of the Magi we see that, indeed, all the ends of the earth have seen this salvation.

And then the singing begins! The first CHRISTmas carols! Songs of the season are fun, in fact, Silver Bells is one of my favorites, but the true carols of CHRISTmas feed our souls even as our raised voices bring Him honor and glory!

Even the little boy with the drum knew that he stood before the King. He gave Jesus his best. In all our comings and goings this season, let us remember to do the same.
