A Multitude of The Heavenly Host – Praising God
“And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men!” Luke 2:13-14
“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork.” Psalm 19:1
On this Holy Night of Jesus’s birth the angels of heaven, and not a few, but a multitude, filled the skies rejoicing and worshiping God.
“Glory to God in the Highest and on earth peace good will towards men.” Luke 2:14
There are those who argue for the benefits of moderation and economy in avoiding excesses and certainly in those things that, though beneficial to us in some degree, would in excess harm, debilitate, or deter us from our appointed purpose, we must exercise restraint to avoid altogether and others employ only sparingly as necessary. Food is good but over indulgence can be harmful to our health.
On the other hand, when it comes to worshipping God, to honoring Him with all our hearts, our resources, our talents, our songs, our praises, our thanksgiving, our souls, minds and strengths there can never be too much!!! Heaven will always praise God without constraint or reservation and so should we.
A multitude is an innumerable company, more than could be numbered. This Christmas let us begin an extravagant celebration of our Lord, Jesus Christ, spare no expense, hold nothing back, give extravagantly, worship Him unrestrainedly, praise Him and share His love unreservedly. Laugh out loud! Sing out loud! Give hilariously! Dance like there’s no tomorrow and give glory to God in the highest! Bless the Lord with the very best of the very best that you have and join with the multitude of the heavenly hosts praising God and saying,
“Glory to God in the Highest, and on earth peace goodwill toward men!”
