- Great Joy�
Luke 2:10-12: Then the angel said to them, Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people.� For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.�
Savior! Christ Lord!� This was the babe in waddling cloths.� Our Savior,�our Christ,�our Lord,�we worship you.
The great joy� is the joy of having a “Savior” as Christ and as Lord. May�we experience this great joy,� Lord, as�we remember your birth. You are still born today only in a manger � �a lowly heart, made low by repentance and the need for a Savior. May�our heart be found a manger, and may our joy be� great, Lord, knowing that you are indeed born in us.�
It was the shepherds � lowly men of lowly occupation � who saw Jesus in the manger. Is this not the same today? Only the humble see Christ as Savior and Lord. Grant, Lord, that�we come in lowliness of heart to worship you as Savior and Christ and Lord.
Let us bless the Lord for the great joy� that is ours, and bless one another with that joy,�
Thankful for your prayers,
