The simplest and best joy of Christmas would have to be Jesus. He is the Bringer of Joy and the reason why we celebrate this holiday. He brings us the kind of joy that the world and circumstances cannot take away. I think about all the Christmases I’ve celebrated and realize that none of the presents, or treats, or time with family would mean anything, if God had not sent His Son to earth to give us salvation, peace, and new life.
So, over the next 24 hours, be sure to worship God and give Him thanks for the real reason for the season.
