This is the first installment of an audio mini-series, experiment. Merry Christmas from the Sharps. Please enjoy.


Merry Christmas! I hope this will give you all something to gather around as you scrurry through last minute shopping, baking cookies, or snuggling up and binge watching classics on Netflix. Whatever your family tradition may be, we hope you let us be a part of that. From now until Christmas, we’ll look at Jesus’ birth in snapshots. These throwbacks have a missional filter, since he is the original sent one.

The theme of singing is closely tied to this joyous time of year. One reason for that is that we often think of Jesus’ birth as being ushered in with the singing of angels.
Ironically, the Bible never speaks of angels singing yet it speaks of their continual Worship and their crying out to him: Holy Holy Holy. Some speculate that the entire make up of angelic beings are like musical instruments for the glory of God.
I would suggest that we too are built this way. Our throats are wind instruments, our hands and all the rest of the body is percussion and the muscle flaps we call vocal cords are the vibrating strings. That kinda covers the three main categories of instruments. It is God’s design we have been ripping off all this time!

So not only are we made to worship, and made in his image, but this Worship is a reflection of his image. The Trinity is truly and purely God-centered. All three bring glory to each other. This is shown when Jesus is born and even in pre-conception, at the announcement of His coming. How are we proclaiming that He is coming? We know that He is coming again!
