Joy to the World: A Christmas Devotion on Psalm 98

Joy to the world, the Lord is come! Let earth receive her King! Let every heart prepare Him room, And Heaven and nature sing, And Heaven and nature sing, And Heaaaaaa-ven, and Heaven, and nature sing! I know you've heard that last line sung with the confident (and often off-key) belt-out that only kids can muster. :) But how much do you know about this famous Christmas carol? This short devotion talks about the origins of the song, and it comes from Christmas Karaoke, a 4-week family faith kit from Vanessa Myers that focuses on Christmas hymns! One of the most well-known Christmas songs is Joy to the World. But did you know that this song is not based on the birth of Jesus, but actually comes from Psalm 98 found in the Old Testament?

That's why I was so excited to learn that Bible Games Central just released 4 new games![/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image="44100" img_size="full" alignment="center"][vc_column_text]Bible Bingo - Really, this is a game every children's pastor should have on hand. It's perfect as a time-filler activity or large group game that also allows kids to work on their Bible skills! While there are lots of versions of Bible Bingo out there, what I really love about this version is that the Bingo boards are specially designed to correspond to how the Bible is organized.
