A Christmas Carol

Psalm 98 |

"A Christmas Carol", is a novella by Charles Dickens, first published in London by Chapman & Hall in 1843 and illustrated by John Leech. It recounts the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, an elderly miser who is visited by the ghost of his former business partner Jacob Marley and the spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come.

Dismissing the activities of ghosts and spirits as portrayed in Dickens' classic story, Psalm 98 presents Biblical Insights into the Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come concerning our Christian faith.

Christmas Past

Sing to the Lord a new song, for He has done marvelous things!
"Angels We have Heard on High"
Psalm 98:1-3

Christmas Present

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth, burst into jubilant song.
"Go Tell It on the Mountain"
Psalm 98:4-6

Christmas Yet to Come
Sing before the Lord, for He comes to judge the earth.
"Joy to the World"
Psalm 98:7-9

We wish each of you and yours a happy and blessed Christmas. "May that be truly said of us, and all of us! And so, as Tiny Tim observed, God bless us, Everyone."
