My Christmas came early on Saturday night December 3. Second Baptist invited the singing group Veritas to give a concert for worship. Their music along with the orchestra and choir was moving, powerful, amazing and stirred the soul. As I serve in the new member ministry I have the great privilege to be a small part of confirming people’s faith in Jesus. There is no doubt the highlight of my celebration of the Christmas season came this evening. There can be no better reminder of the incredible gift of grace and mercy we all have been given through the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus. What an amazing gift and reason to celebrate the birth of our Savior.
I often arrive at Christmas hurried and miss the opportunity to truly contemplate the enormity of God’s gift of redemption. Tonight I was stopped in my tracks by the powerful music that resonated in my soul. Following that time of worship I received another special gift and high privilege of being a very small part of confirming Wilson’s acceptance of Jesus as his Savior. Christmas came early this year. Celebrating the “Good News of Great Joy for All the People”. Merry Christmas!
