Spread the Joy!









John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.


Most people say that they find real joy this time of year. But where do they find it? What is the real joy of Christmas?

Maybe they find it in family, seeing those they love only this time of year.

It could be that people find it in gifts. Either by watching someone opening a gift they have given, or being on the other end and opening up a gift.  

Whatever the case is, you must admit there is a wonderful, joyful spirit that comes with the Christmas Season.

For a Christian, the joy should be knowing that Jesus came to this earth as a baby born in a manger. That He died and was buried, but rose from the grave three days later.

The joy that we find this time of year can be shared with others. Not like a toy that is going to break, or family that is going to eventually have to leave. But the joy of salvation last for all of eternity.

This Christmas season, share with others the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Lord wants to use you to tell others of REAL JOY that never departs a Christian.


Merry Christmas,
