O Come....Joyful and Triumphant!

            Have you had your Joy Juice today?  O, come all ye faithful and drink in His joy!

            May we begin this Christmas season with a song of JOY in our hearts.  The best way to have genuine Christmas JOY is to keep our heart in the right place….focused on the reason we can celebrate.  As the familiar slogan says: “Jesus IS the reason for the season!”

            Let’s saturate this Christmas with praise to God for sending His son to live and die for us.  Do you think that often we take the Truth for granted?  Have we allowed the enormity of God’s sacrificial gift of love to lose some of its wonder?  This Christmas may we each ask God to give us a renewed spirit of love and joy.  Let’s ask Him to touch our heart in such a way that we are humbled and awed by His “Indescribable Gift”.  (“Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!” 2 Corinthians 9:15)

            In the words of the beautiful old hymn:

O come, all ye faithful,
Joyful and triumphant,
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem.
Come and behold Him,
Born the King of Angels!
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.
               Do you adore Him?  He adores you!  That’s why He came!  Make it a habit to tell the Lord every day how much you love Him. You may be surprised that Christmas will be more meaningful…AND you may just find yourself celebrating Christmas every day of the year! 
              May we sing “Oh, Come all ye faithful and drink in the Joy Juice of Jesus!”
