“The Joy that Christmas Brings”

“The Joy that Christmas Brings.”

Thursday, December 21.

“The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.”

When the coming of Jesus Christ was foretold, many people received the message with joy.  Many were happy because they thought, Jesus was coming to free them from political bondage.  Many received the message with joy and happiness, because they would no more be under subjection.  Even Jesus’ mother Mary did not know how it would happen.  She received the news through an angel.  The angel told her she would be with a child.  Mary was a virgin, so she was astonished.  The news was too much for her.  But she received the news with joy.  Joseph later accepted the good news.  The people at the inn had no room for the baby Jesus. He was denied a place to sleep.  Jesus was eventually born in a staple.  When Jesus was born, he experienced all the same feelings these people experienced.  It is because he was human, when he walked the earth.  He was with humankind. He ate with us.  He talked with us.  He experienced hunger.  He was beaten.  He experienced pain. This is to show that Jesus suffered everything we are going through.  In this world, we will go through all kinds of things.  But let us remember that Jesus came to bring us joy.  He brought us salvation and redemption.  Let us through all these things know that God loves us.  God himself came and lived among us.  What more can we ask for? We must enjoy the joy and peace He offers.  We must comprehend the reality of His birth.  Let us ask God to be with us as we enjoy this season of peace and good will towards us.

Memory verse: Isaiah 9:6

“Christmas is the spirit of giving without the thought of getting.” Thomas S. Monson
