Joy for All  

Posted by Benjie in , ,


The Christmas season is filled with joy. We see it on the faces of those around us—even in the hustle and bustle of last-minute dashes to the market for a forgotten gift or a missing ingredient. We hear it in on the air as the bell-ringers fill the skies from one end of town to the next. Joy just seems to ooze out of everyone. Sometimes we’re afraid that the “Scrooge” in our life will break his face because he dons his annual smile for the Christmas spirit.
The joy is for all believers as we join with B. E. Warren in singing the chorus: “It is joy unspeakable and full of glory, full of glory, full of glory; It is joy unspeakable and full of glory, Oh, the half has never yet been told.
The joy is for all people as the message of Christ, humbling Himself to our level, makes it possible of anyone who will believe to have eternal life.
            The joy is for all time because when Jesus brought the joy to a manger-bed filled with hay some two thousand years ago, it permeated all of existence—from creation to last breath. It never wears out.

You love Him, though you have not seen Him. And though not seeing Him now, you believe in Him and rejoice with inexpressible and glorious joy.  (1 Peter 1:8)
