Good tidings of great joy

luke2.1011-30MON.001

I love the CHRISTmas season. I try so hard not to decorate my house before Thanksgiving (although I do listen to CHRISTmas music…), but the day after Thanksgiving, decorations explode! Some of my favorite pieces of decor are angels (probably because my dear Tante Lois, who now celebrates CHRISTmas in Heaven with Jesus, liked angels). This simple statement–“I bring you good tidings of great joy”–should stir joy within our hearts. God made a promise to send a Savior. God kept that promise. Jesus Christ IS our source of great joy! And He will be my focus the entire month of December. Come along and celebrate with me! (If you want to sing a CHRISTmas carol to go with today’s message, I suggest “Angels, From the Realms of Glory” by James Montgomery.)
