Hallelujah

Hallelujah - Advent Devotional @ Walton United Church, Oakville, Ontario

One of the most dramatic images of the nativity story is that of a heavenly host of angels – and not a few but a multitude – praising God in the night sky above the shepherds. The importance and magnitude of what is happening bursts forth and for a brief moment the glory of the birth of Jesus is reflected in the spectacle of this heavenly crowd. Everything stops to revel in the praise and worship of God who has given His son to the world, and for a little while there is only dazzling joy.


Loving God, as we prepare for the excitement and celebration that tomorrow brings, lift up my heart in praise and thanksgiving to worship Your gift to each one of us, the gift of Your Son Jesus Christ. Let my soul sing out and rejoice in Your glory. Amen.

Luke 2: 13-14

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace among those whom he favors!”

Merry Christmas! Hallelujah, Christ is born! Whether today is busy and chaotic, or quiet and contemplative, may your heart know the love of God.


Dear Lord, Supreme Father,
On this day of great joy, we worship your name. In this holy time, we give thanks for all we have and all we are. Let all that we do bring you praise and honour and glory, now and forever.
Amen.

John 1:14

14 And the Word became flesh and lived among us, and we have seen his glory, the glory as of a father’s only son, full of grace and truth.
