Have you had your Joy Juice today? Share the joy of the Lord and remind others about the joy that can be found in Christmas!
Are you a JOYful example? If we profess to be Christians, we should be filled with JOY because we have the best reason in the world to be joyful! ESPECIALLY at this time of year!
· Instead of complaining about all we have to do to get ready for the holidays, we should be rejoicing & praising the Lord for His gift of love in the form of Jesus. Luke 1:14 says: "And you will have joy and gladness, and many will rejoice at his birth.”
· Rather than dreading the season we should meditate on WHY we are celebrating Christmas….and thank God for His goodness and mercy. Matthew 1:21 "And she will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for it is He who will save His people from their sins."
· When we find ourselves getting tired and weary of all the plans for the Christmas season, let’s stop and remember the sacrifice that was made on our behalf. Philippians 2:8 speaks of Jesus: “And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death--even death on a cross!”
Yes, friend…we have every reason to be cheerfully anticipating the Christmas season. Let’s remember to speak words of joyful celebration.
