A UKRAINIAN CHRISTMAS

READ:
Luke 2:6-14

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
-Luke 2:14

THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:

Amos 4-6
Revelation 7

The people of Ukraine include many wonderful elements in their observance of Christmas. Sometimes wisps of hay are placed on the dinner table as a reminder of the Bethlehem manger. Another portion of their celebration echoes the events of the nights when the Saviour entered the world. A Christmas prayer is offered and then the father in the household offers the greeting, “Christ is born!” The family then responds, “Let us glorify Him!”
These words draw my mind to the appearance of the angels in the sky over Bethlehem on the night Christ was born. The angel of the Lord declared, “For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord” (Luke 2:11). The heavenly host responded, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill towards men!” (v.14).
Those twin messages give such depth of meaning to this wonderful time of the year. The Saviour has come bringing forgiveness and hope – and He is deserving of all the worship we can give Him.
May all who know the wonder of His gift of eternal life join with the voices of that angelic host declaring, “Glory to God in the highest!” – Bill Crowder
With th’angelic hosts proclaim,
“Christ is born in Bethlehem!”
Hark! the herald angels sing,
“Glory to the newborn King!” – Wesley


The spectacular glory of God’s love for us was revealed in the coming of Jesus.
