Christmas joy is not on sale. SEPTEMBER 2014 002

We will not find it at the mall, super stores, or favorite .com sites.

I surmise it would be a best seller the first season that manufacturers released it to distributors. Even our traditional Christmas greeting of ‘Merry Christmas’ carries a wish for joy

In Santa hype, advertisers depict him as merry, jovial, and jolly. Joy, deep joy is a gift from the Lord. In this season of gift giving, Jesus hopes we will receive the year-round gift of unequivocal joy.

“I have spoken these things to you so that My joy may be in you and your joy may be complete (John 15:11 HCS).”

Our joy feeds on faith in our Savior and His promises. The angels delivered news of great joy!

“Don’t be afraid, for look, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people; today a Savior who is Messiah the Lord was born for you in the city of David (Luke 2:10b-11 HCS).”
