24. Great Joy to All!

Joy to the World the Lord is come, let earth receive her King!

The angel announced to the shepherds:

Luke 2:10 I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. 11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

Great joy comes when a war ends, and the soldiers come home to be reunited with their families!  There is great rejoicing and joy, because the enemy has been defeated and peace has come!  That is what happens when a Mighty Warrior, a Savior enters the war.  There is great joy and rejoicing, because the overcoming has started and the war is ending!

Jesus grew up, overcame the enemy, and made the way for all who believe and obey Him to be free from the enemy’s grip!  And with that freedom comes great joy!  Christmas is a celebration of joy.  Let’s be sure to receive and enjoy the great joy Jesus brings.

Joy to the World the Lord is come, let earth receive her King!

Luke 2:8-20 4: Master Rescuer Appears: The Rescuer is promised
