No Expiration Date on God's Joy!

            Have you had your Joy Juice today? There is NO expiration date.  It’s always just as fresh as the first batch you ever tasted!

            Though we have heard the Christmas story many, many times, it never gets old! We should continue to be in awe of God’s goodness and love.  Doesn’t it bless your heart to read in the Old Testament, the prophecies which are fulfilled in the New Testament…..especially the prophecies regarding the birth of Jesus?

               In Isaiah 7:14, the prophet Isaiah addressed the "house of David," meaning the family and descendants of King David. He spoke of a virgin being with child and giving birth. Isaiah said this would a sign from God and that the child would be referred to as "Immanuel," which means, "God with us."

                 The New Testament books of Matthew and Luke record details involving the birth of Jesus…born about 700 years after the time of Isaiah. They tell that He was born of the virgin Mary and is the Son of God.  Jesus literally can be referred to as "God with us." …just as the verses in Isaiah prophesied!

            God has an intricate Master plan.  As we celebrate the birth of Jesus, let’s keep in mind God’s love for us from the beginning of time.

            Though the story happened many years ago, it is still just as fresh and true as when it came to pass.  Drink in the JOY of JESUS and get ready for a special season of Christmas JOY.
