Worthy Of Celebration
I was asking myself this question today. Why is the celebrating of Jesus being born biblical?
Christmas is one of the greatest spiritual events that has ever taken place in history. God himself opened the heavens and sent a celebrating band of angels. These angels I'm sure sang though the bible does not say so.
One of the reasons I believe they sang is that some angels have musical instrument in their bodies. The bible says that they rejoiced and many times we too will gather to rejoice together on joyous occasions. Most the time rejoicing includes music and singing.
Heaven is full of music, singing and praising, so even if they did not sing. To think they may have would not be unreasonable, knowing that God himself put musical instruments in some angles bodies. They were living instruments of music.
God chose to have a great event to announce the Christ Child being born. He did not have to open the skies of heavens glories to reveal something wonderful to lowly shepherds. He did not have to let them witness the rejoicing of heavenly angels. He could have chose some other way, but it was a celebration.
He chose to tell us of the celebration in His Word. God made sure that Christ's birthday was recognized as a great day, and what a great day it still is. God chose to make it part of His holy Word. The historical occurrence has lead many people in the dark spiritually to the light of the world, (Jesus our Savoiur.)
Just as the shepherds watched their sheep in a dark night,
God's heavenly angels filled the dark skies with light.
God then opened their eyes to fully understand.
That God, that night had provided himself a lamb.
The occasion called for something special from heaven's bright land. A celebration of God's promise of a Saviour fulfilled.
Jesus' birth is totally worthy of celebration. With rejoicing, singing and praising God.

Genesis 22:8 And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb
(This is old testament prophecy of God providing the lamb of God, His Son,
as the sacrifice for our sin.)
