Great Joy

I love the Christmas Story found in Luke chapter 2. I remember we used to have a Christmas singing at school. We got to wear big white collars with red bows, and one lucky kid would get to read Luke chapter 2 in front of all the parents and school. It was a big deal.

Luke Chapter 2:6-11
And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she sould be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

I especially like verse 10. When you realize what God did for us when He sent his son. It brings joy. Truly Christmas is about joy, and yes it is about the gift. The gift of Jesus to us.

  1. You know, I always wanted to read Luke Chapter 2 in school. It was a big deal to me too. Well, you can have a Christmas program for your kids, and have Peach to read it. Love you. Good Blog.
