Weekly Watch Focus: The Glory of Christmas!

FRIDAY, Dec. 20, 2013, At Christmas we celebrate the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Just as the shepherds beheld His glory the first Christmas, may His present glory surround all who watch for and hunger for His appearing. Pray that the wonderful presence of the Holy Spirit surround us, our families, and our churches in this season. May the bright Presence give fresh hope and encouragement to us all, especially the poor, the lonely, and those battling infirmities. This Christmas, may we come as worshipers, not complainers, giving thanks for every blessing of this year. Let the wonderful fragrance of the glory of Christ permeate each of our homes and churches.

Luke 2:9,10,13,14, “And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. Then the angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people.’ And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: ‘Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men!’”

Ps. 100:4 Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.

Ps. 30:11, “You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness.”

Zeph. 3:17, “The Lord your God in your midst, the Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.”

Ps 117:1-2, Eph 5:19, 1 Chron. 16:9
