Christmas — Real Joy to the World!!!

Day 2609: Fill your heart with joy – only two weeks left before Christmas day but the Christmas spirit is limitless!

Scripture: These will wage war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, because He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are with Him are the called and chosen and faithful. Revelations 17:14

Thoughts/questions: From a familiar carol, Joy to the World, comes these familiar words:

‘Joy to the world! The Lord is come;
Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare Him room,
And heaven and nature sing.’

Revelations tells us that at the end, Jesus will overcome because He is King of kings and Lord of lords! At the first Christmas, Jesus came as Lord and King. At the beginning of time, Jesus created kings and lords and their creator was their Lord and King!

Past, present, future – Jesus is King and Lord. Yes, the Lord is come! But the earth has not followed through and received Him as King. Many have NO room for Him. Heaven and nature sing because they both know who this Jesus truly is and we should loudly sing with them.

Make this a Christmas of singing, and if you don’t sing well, whistle, and if whistling is hard for you, hum! Yes, it is Joy to the World! And let’s express our joy in song!

Suggested prayer: Jesus, I acknowledge You as my Lord and my King . . .
