Christmas Joy

Wonder why we hurry 'n scurry 'bout at this time of year? We know that Christmas is on December 25th every year, 'n yet there still seems ta' be so much ta' do 'n so little time ta' do it. By tha' time Christmas gets here, tha' joy's been sucked right out of it. How can ya' keep joy in your Christmas?

No matter how rushed we get durin' tha' Christmas season, we should never forget tha' real reason we celebrate it. 

John 1:14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

God loved us so much that He sent His Son, Jesus. He's full of grace 'n truth. Like Paul said, His 'taking tha form of a bondservant, 'n comin' in tha' likeness of men' He lived ta' know us. Ta' feel pain. Ta' feel joy. Ta' feel rejection, so He can understand 'n help us with our disappointments, hard times, 'n good times. He came for us so we can be rescued, saved from our sin. What greater love is there?!

Ya' can have joy, happiness, in decoratin' tha' tree, cookin' Christmas cookies, 'n givin' ('n receivin') presents. Just keep your focus on tha' real JOY of CHRISTmas 'n it'll overflow inta' everythin' else ya' do.

Things Ta' Think 'bout:

1. What will ya' do ta' keep tha' joy in your Christmas?

2. How will ya' share your Christmas joy with others?

God, we praise ya' for tha' joy you gave us so long ago. For fullfillin' your promise of sendin' your Son, Jesus Christ! Lord, help us ta' keep that joy in our Christmas this year. In tha' name of Jesus. amen
