Gospel Message Day 90

Christmas Scripture Advent Calendar, Part 23

Day 23 scripture - Luke 2:8-11
And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

I always hear Linus telling this story.

Because Christmas is all about Son of God coming to save us. Everything else good and wonderful about Christmas stems from its origin. Service. Kindness. Love. Patience. Teaching. Sacrifice. Because those are all things that Christ did for us.

So today's song will relate to the angels mentioned in this scripture. And I'm going to post by the two a cappella groups that I've been recently listening to and loving.

Different for me, but still pretty awesome.

And to close, here is another beautifully amazing and recently created version of Angels from the Realms of Glory, recorded by some LDS artists and combined with the largest live nativity yet. (I had to work and couldn't make it that day, but my brother is in there!) It's the familiar tune of Angels We Have Heard On High, but the lyrics in the verses are different--with that one about Him coming to the temple that I absolutely adore. And this arrangement is quite similar to Wilberg's arrangement which MoTab sings at the end of every Christmas concert. So I love it in many ways.
