Can Nat King Cole sing Easter Songs?
How do you know that you truly worshiped the baby Jesus this Christmas, as Jesus himself taught? Here’s how you know – answer the next question:
Can you sing “Silent Night” and “Christ the Lord is Risen Today” back to back?
Nat King Cole, like most artists who publish their Christmas albums, have nothing to sing about 4 months from now because they really don’t believe that the baby Jesus was crucified, buried, and rose again. Which means, most music artists who sing “Silent Night” don’t really believe in Christmas.
I hope you do/did.
Make the journey from Silent Night to Resurrection
Yes we did! – though just the first verse. But this is why we did sing this Christmas song:
Do you believe that the baby you sang about a little over three months ago, was crucified, buried, and rose again on the third day?
Sadly, most people don’t. It’s easy to sing about a helpless, vulnerable, and cuddly baby. It’s another thing to sing about a sovereign King who rules over everything – including the grave. This is why so many music artists produce Christmas albums but have nothing to sing about on Easter.
We hope you made the journey from the manger to the empty tomb. And if so, then continue on “looking to Jesus the founder and perfecter of our faith” (Heb. 12:1-2). Keep singing, believing, looking, hoping, seeking, loving, serving, praying – keep holding on to your confession by loving what Jesus loves – the church. It’s the only group that makes it to the other side.
You truly celebrated Christmas if you believe that the babe born in a manger grew up and lived a perfect sinless life for 33 years, proved that he really was both fully God and fully Man, was crucified, buried and on the third day rose again, and ascended to his Father, and will return as he said, when he has gathered in all his sheep. This is how you know that you truly celebrated Christmas just 4 months ago?
He who was born of a virgin girl is Risen!
