It’s A Wonderful Life… Joy!

I’ll be back on Sunday and continuing our celebration of the wonderful life that we have in Christ. A great big THANKS to Brad Sullivan for doing an outstanding job with last Sunday’s message while I was out! This Sunday we’ll be unwrapping the gift of “joy.” When Jesus was born the angels headed out to the fields to shout out the good news to the shepherds watching their flocks. “We bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people!” they said. Indeed the coming of the Messiah was a joyous occasion… though his life was certainly not always filled with such joy. Our lives sometimes are anything but ‘joyous’… but for those of us in Christ we can still be full of joy. How is this you ask? I am SO glad you asked. Join us on Sunday as we celebrate the JOY that is ours in Christ… even if this is a tough time of year for you. In the meantime, read Luke 2. I’m curious to hear from you. When have you experienced true Christian joy… even when you didn’t feel much like smiling? Leave me your comments.
