“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”
We serve a God that is creative and has given His creation that ability as well. For some, this creativity is expressed with written words or works of art made with our hands. For others it is expressed through dreaming up new ideas or innovations. We are all gifted uniquely and should use our gifts according to our own ability.
For the past few years God has been working through the gifts of some very talented musicians and songwriter here at Palm Valley Church. This new music video is their latest work.
Can I tell you how proud I am of the heart behind their work? As their Pastor, it brings me joy to share this with you because of their desire is to use their gift to draw people towards Jesus and what the purpose of Christmas is.
Luke 2:8-11. “And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.”
That last phrase…He is Messiah, the Lord. This is not just another baby. A king is born this night, the savior they had all been waiting for. The repeating chorus of the new song “This Child” emphasized what this baby will one day accomplish.
‘Cause one day this child will empty a grave.
At the hands of this baby death will be slain.
His Kingdom will triumph, Jesus will reign.
Heaven will open, so don’t be afraid.
So enjoy this gift of music. Share it with friends and family and if you are not connected to a church family, we would love to have you join us at Palm Valley Church this season. For Christmas Service times go to www.palmvalley.church
