Libera - Inspirational Music

Hello again, my dear reader friends! It's been a while since my last post and Christmas is almost upon us! I believe it is an amazing season...not because of all the silliness that goes on around in the world during that time, but because of the amazing thing that we remember at this special time every year. How the Great God of Heaven and Earth and all that is in them, the Great God of the Universe, our Great Creator, should love us so much that He would give us His most precious Son to redeem us from sin and death and give us eternal life to all who believe and receive His salvation. I never ever cease to wonder at this. This greatness that choose to be a small helpless baby, born in a very poor home, and in a poor, dirty manger. To grow and become a Man and die on a horrible cross...all for us! It is beyond our understanding! But we can accept it with humility and thanksgiving and give our lives to Him as an offering. Thank you, Lord! 
This is the GOSPEL:

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His 
        Only begotten 
        Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not 
        Perish, but have 
John 3: 16
We do not want to celebrate this season in the way the world celebrates...just gifts and material things...but it is a time to worship our Redeemer.

Recently, I discovered an amazing boys choir based in London, called Libera. They mainly sing classical sacred music and they are just amazing and so heavenly. You've probably already noticed the music video I put on the top of the blog for the Carol of the Bells...I think this is the best version I've found for it so far. Here is some more for you to be blessed by this Christmas time:

Be Blessed.

Dear Sarah,

This is a lovely post, dear sis! :). How true this is, and so, so wonderful! God the Almighty, loved us, and gave us His only Begotten SON for our salvation. And what a salvation! Like the words of the hymn, "Oh what else can I do, but kneel and worship You, and come just as I am, my whole life an offering."

Oh, I love the Libera Choir, Sarah! They are so inspirational and heavenly in their music, and definitely the Carol of the Bells sung by them, is one of my favourite versions for the song. I'll try and listen to the other clips soon too. What I heard from them was really beautiful!

Love you!

Dear Maddy,
Thanks:) Glad you like my blog's new looks:) It's fun to change every now and then.

Yes, Christmas is a special time for Christians. There would have been no salvation for us without Jesus' incarnation and birth. Thank you, Lord!

Love in Him,

Thanks, Shaz. Glad it has blessed you.
Of course, you may use the GOSPEL acrostic. I didn't make it up myself. I found it somewhere, I don't quite remember where now. Probably in an old book or tract. I'm not sure. But, yes, it is special, isn't it. The Gospel in a nutshell!

Wish you the best in His love,
