The Doctor: Celebrate Christmas – All Year!

Now here the Apostle at ounce gives us a general test.  Whatever else the gospel is, it is ‘glad tidings’!  Here is the comparison – ‘How beautiful are the feet of them that bring glad tidings of great joy!”  Sometimes people think that I have suddenly gone mad if I announce Christmas hymns at some other time of the year.  But I have not!  I do it deliberately in order to introduce this very theme – and why should we not sing these hymns all year round?  Why should we leave them only to that particular time of the year?  The gospel in its fullness should be constantly in our minds.  It is glad tidings, good news!  – D. Martyn loyd-Jones, Romans Vol. 10, p. 299

One thought on “The Doctor: Celebrate Christmas – All Year!

  1. People should come to Oakdale where Grandpa King has always thought Christmas songs should be sung all year. And if that wasn’t bad enough, Josh’s dad is continuing the tradition. Just last week, we sang “Oh Come All Ye Faithful” and “Silent Night”. I’m sure those aren’t traditional Mother’s Day songs.
