Have you had your JOY JUICE today? How many Christmas cards have you received? Did any of them talk about the Joy of Jesus?
Some do…many don’t! But I can tell you one place that you can always find the message of Christmas JOY…as well as JOY throughout the year. It’s a collection of letters and messages of love that is always available. All we have to do is to open and read. It’s called “The Holy Bible”.
We can find God’s love spread from Genesis to Revelation. It’s a common thread throughout the entire Old and New Testaments. Often during this season, we receive Christmas letters in which friends share the highlights of their year. Well, God’s Word has many highlights, but I believe the most special ones have to be the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus…Proof positive of God’s love for us!
This Christmas as you send your Christmas cards, take the time to pray for each person on your list. Ask God for opportunities to share His love and, maybe, to put someone on your heart who is not usually on your Christmas list. Maybe that person needs to know that God loves him; it could be she is lonely and needs a word of encouragement. Send a special greeting of love and joy this Christmas. Share the GOOD NEWS found in Luke 2:10-11: “And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.”
I'm hoping that you will share the JOY of Jesus with someone special that needs extra Christmas JOY this season!
