December 25: The First Noel

The First Noel: Lady Antebellum

The First Noel: Bocelli

If there was a first, does that mean there is going to be a second? The First Christmas is celebrated today, and what a joy it is to worship the King born in the manger.  The FIRST Noel was the angels saying to the shepherds that the Savior is born in Bethlehem.  The Second Noel was the shepherds returning and telling everyone they met that they had seen the messiah!  Then a third Noel happened when the Wisemen shared the news.  A chain reaction began, and one Noel produced many!

Another Noel happens, as Luther says, whenever the baby Jesus is born by faith in OUR hearts.  We sing the First Noel and remember that there will be many more Noels to come!  Today, as Jesus is born again in you there is a celebration!  Then, as you share the news with family and friends there is another Noel!

The Christmas account is not a static event that happened once a long time ago in ancient Israel.  It continues to live in God’s Word today in our lives!  The Bible says that the Word of God is living and active.  The Christmas account is just as alive today as when Jesus was sleeping in the hay.  The First Noel has turned into billions of Noels as we sing God’s praises in worship today!
