Jesus brings joy.

Today, celebrating the birth of Jesus fills us with joy.  Bonding our lives eternally with His gives us new life.  Light invades the darkness when the journey with Christ begins.  No longer does sin hold us captive; God’s grace and mercy cover our inequities.  We are all equal in Jesus, brothers, and sisters in Christ.

Think of what Jesus does for you every day.  Spending time with friends and family, thank God for another year together.  Appreciate the blessings you have.  Praise Jesus for health, wealth, and gladness.  Whatever gifts you enjoy came from above:

“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.”(James 1:17 NIV)

Recently, my husband couldn’t find his keys after service in church.  Turning to the ladies behind us, I asked for help.  Not seeing the keys, with a sparkle in her eye, one lady said:

“Your sure do like to dance!”

Embarrassed, with a smile, I said, “Worship is my favorite part!”

Worship well!

Sing for joy at the birth of Jesus.  Let yourself worship the baby who became our Saviour.  Celebrate the beginning of a new chapter in world history, the day Christ entered the world as flesh, His mission one of love.

“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 heaven, and heaven and nature sing.”

G.F. Handel/Isaac Watts

Focus on the Savior today.  Whatever mountains you’re facing, give them to the Mountain Mover.  Rest in the glory of Jesus’ birth, singing joyfully for our King.  Prepare room in your heart for the King of all Kings. Carry the wonder of Christmas with you throughout the year.  Share Jesus’ miraculous birth with all who will listen.
