Sunday Praise & Worship Message - Third Sunday of Advent - Exultation

The third Sunday of Advent is the one I call “Exultation”. The definition of this word is “a feeling of triumphant elation or jubilation; rejoicing”. Yes, as Christians, we have a lot to rejoice about during this Christmas season. We celebrate the birth of the Christ, the Messiah foretold so long ago. The excitement and joy we express now is the same that was expressed over 2,000 years ago. The shepherds who watched their flocks by night were told of this wonderful birth. They were, at first fearful, but later their hearts were filled with great joy. That joy was shared not only on the Earth but also in heaven. Huge choirs of angels sang and filled the world with a joyful chorus. They praised God in the highest and wished something wonderful, “on earth peace, good will toward men.”
