Songs of Joy

Advent/Christmas Eve

The Promise, Matthew 1:18–25

Christmas Eve Service • December 24, 2019 • Josh Lindstrom

When Joseph, a good and just man, learned that his betrothed, Mary, was with child he was unwilling to put her to shame and resolved to divorce her quietly. As he was considering these things, an angel of the Lord appeared to him and told him to “not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 1:20). This son was to be named Jesus “for he will save his people from their sins” (Matthew 1:21). This son has come and this Christmas Eve we celebrate his offer of forgiveness to all and declare the one name under heaven by which men and women can be saved. While like Joseph this news can catch many off-guard, we pray that they will respond in obedient faith like him. THEME - GRACE 1. A divine beginning (v. 18) 2. A good man (v. 19) 3. A call to respond (vs. 20-23) 4.

The Nunc Dimittis, Luke 2:29–32

December 22, 2019 • Josh Lindstrom

Out of obedience to the law, Mary and Joseph bring the infant Jesus to the temple in Jerusalem to offer a sacrifice. At the temple, they encounter a righteous and devout man, named Simeon, who was “waiting for the consolation of Israel” and had been told by the Holy Spirit that “he would not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Christ” (Luke 2:26). In the Spirit, Simeon declares that Jesus is “a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and for glory to your people Israel” (Luke 2:32). Though some 2000 years removed, Simeon’s words remain true today. Jesus is the Light of the World for all people, and we believe, in faith, that many will come to know him personally this Christmas Eve at Woodmen. THEME – EXPECTATION 1. A man – righteous and devout (vs. 25-26) 2. An encounter – orchestrated by God (vs. 27-28) 3. A song – salvation has come (vs. 29-32) 4. The truth – not all will sing (vs. 33-35) Songs: Go Tell It On The Mountain / Oh, What a Wonderful Child O Come All Ye Faithful (Riddle) #31054 by C F Oakeley & J F Wade Public Domain The First Noel #5921887 by P Kipley & P Wickham Meaux Jeaux, Songs From The Indigo Room & Simpleville Music King Of Kings #7127647 by B Ligertwood, J Ingram & S Ligertwood 2018 Hillsong Music Publishing Exalted Over All #7065022 by A Rozier, J Ingram & J Cates 2016 © All Essential Music Come Thou Long Expected Jesus #1759517 by J S Bach & C Wesley Public Domain -------------------------------------------- Love Well Change Lives Through Christ It’s the vision of Woodmen, led by Pastor Josh Lindstrom, in the Pikes Peak area of Colorado Find more at https://woodmenvalley.org or download the Woodmen app at https://subsplash.com/woodmenvalleychapel/app — Connect with Us Website: https://woodmenvalley.org Woodmen Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/woodmen_valley_chapel/ Woodmen Twitter: https://twitter.com/Welcome2Woodmen Woodmen Facebook Pages: Central https://www.facebook.com/WoodmenValleyChapel Heights https://www.facebook.com/WoodmenHeights  Monument https://www.facebook.com/WoodmenMoument   Rockrimmon https://www.facebook.com/WoodmenRockrimmon Southwest https://www.facebook.com/WoodmenSouthwest

The Benedictus, Luke 1:68–79

December 15, 2019 • Josh Lindstrom

Zechariah the priest had been serving the Lord in the temple when the angel of the Lord, Gabriel, announced that his wife would conceive and bear a son named “John” who would be “great before the Lord” and “turn many of the children of Israel to the Lord their God” (Luke 1:16). Zechariah struggles to believe and is temporarily made deaf and mute until the sign is fulfilled. When Elizabeth, Zechariah’s wife, delivers their son John, Zechariah’s hearing and speech is restored. Filled with the Holy Spirit, Zechariah prophetically speaks of his son’s future work and the fulfillment of God’s promise to redeem his people. Today, we too declare in faith God’s promised salvation through the work of his son Jesus. THEME – HOPE 1. Salvation is from God (vs. 68-71) 2. Salvation is for us (vs. 72-75) 3. His Mission is ours (vs. 76-77) 4. All Fear is gone (vs. 78-79) Songs: Hark The Herald Angels Sing / King Of Heaven #7019799 by C Wesley, F Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, J Ingram & P Baloche © Integrity Worship Music, Leadworship Songs, Sony/ATV Timber Publishing Way Maker #7115744 by Osinachi Kalu Okoro Egbu 2016 Sinach King Of Kings #7127647 by B Ligertwood, J Ingram & S Ligertwood 2018 Hillsong Music Publishing God With Us #6460237 by L Jordan 2012 Open Hands Music & Integrity's Praise!

The Magnificat, Luke 1:45–55

December 8, 2019 • Josh Lindstrom

The angel Gabriel is sent to Mary, a young virgin betrothed to Joseph, a descendant of David, and announces that she will conceive, bear a son and call his name Jesus. When Mary meets her relative Elizabeth, herself miraculously carrying John the Baptist, Mary erupts into a song of praise as she recognizes that God had looked upon her “humble estate” and will use her to bring to fulfillment his plans to redeem his people. While many will look upon this Christmas as nothing more than a traditional celebration, we the redeemed people of God, like Mary, rejoice that Jesus has come to us, not because we were worthy or deserving, but because we were in need of a Savior. THEME – JOY 1. A young woman believed (v. 45) 2. There is no greater joy (vs. 46-48) 3. There is no greater God (vs. 49-50) 4. There is no cause for worry (vs. 51-53) 5. Rejoice! Our King has come!
