A Burst of Christmas JOY!

          Have you had your JOY JUICE today?  Be sure to pick up several extra servings to share with others during this Christmas season.

            Here’s a burst of Christmas joy: GOD LOVES YOU!  No matter who you are or where you live, how much or how little you have….no matter what you’ve done, GOD LOVES YOU!  Need proof?!  Look in Luke 2: 4-7:

“And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David; To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.  And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.”

            How does this prove God’s love for you…..because He sent Jesus to earth, so that He could die to pay the penalty for your sins… & mine.  My Bible footnote explains: “Although our first picture of Jesus is as a baby in a manger, it must not be our last.  The Christ-child in the manger has been made into a beautiful Christmas scene, but we cannot leave him there.  This tiny, helpless baby grew up and lived an amazing life, died for us, and ascended to heaven and will come back to this earth as King of kings. Do you still picture Jesus as a baby in a manger—or is he your Lord?”

            I pray that you will enjoy this Christmas to the fullest by drinking in the joy of the season and allowing Him to be the Lord of your life.
