Christmas can be a rollercoaster season in today’s culture. There are plenty of things to do, events to attend, things to buy. But since the very beginning, creation’s proper response to the birth of Jesus has been to worship. The angels, the shepherds, the Magi, Mary, Joseph, Anna in the temple, Simeon in the temple: all of them responded in worship at the arrival of the Messiah. On this side of the cross, our response should be no less enthusiastic than theirs! After all, we now know how this story ends: with victory over the grave and eternity in the presence of the Father! How can we not celebrate? How can we not “go tell it on the mountain”? How can we not dance like David danced as the Ark of the Covenant made its way into Jerusalem? The news is that good!
