Jesus brings joy.
When you learn who Jesus is and the purpose He fulfilled, you become joyful. Why? Because Jesus frees you from the confines of this world and introduces you to life everlasting. Our Savior bridges the gap between our sinful nature and God’s perfection.
When the Shepherds in the fields learned about Jesus, they quickly went to the manger. They found exactly what the angel said they would find, a baby wrapped in swaddling, lying in a manger. The Savior of the world came in humble circumstances, bringing joy to the world.
Joy: Jesus, Others, You.
Life with Jesus starts with grace. The first thing God does is cleanse you from your sin as you place your faith in Jesus. No matter what your past holds, your best days are yet to come with Jesus.
“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.” (John 15:9-11 NIV)
Every day, you get a clean slate.
As you truly begin to grasp the implications of God’s unconditional love for you, you can’t help but share it with others. Obedience to Jesus means loving God, loving others. As you strive to live your life for God, you’ll become more and more like Jesus.
Receive the good news of Jesus. Find joy as you put your faith in the one true God.
Lord, thank You for entering our world to bring us salvation. Forgive us for not believing in You sooner. Help us today receive the grace and love You have for us. Let us become more loving towards others as we experience your love for us. Let love become our calling card to the world, just as it was Yours. IJNIP. Amen
