There are several Christmas songs that have “joy” in their lyrics such as the well known song, Joy to the World. So what does this mean to me in my life? It means that I have a joy that doesn’t come from this world, a joy that can’t be taken away from me. It doesn’t come from things I own, how many clothes I have hanging in my closet,or what kind of car I drive. It comes from knowing that Christ came to this world and took my place on the cross. He was an innocent little baby when he was born in the stable and slept in the manger, and He was just as innocent when he died on the cross for my sins. I’ve been given the most awesome gift there could ever be, and that fills me with joy.
Amen to that!
