A Baby Boy!

December 16, 2010 Donna New

Luke 2:10 “But the angel said to them, Do not be afraid for behold I bring you good news of a great joy which will come to all the people.

Christmas is a time of rejoicing and celebrating a new baby boy! Baby’s are always someone to be grateful for. Life is a precious gift. Not only was this a baby, this was God’s Son who had come to show us who God is like, what His qualities are. They were compassion when He healed the lepers and the blind and the lame, grace and mercy when He forgave the prostitutes and tax collectors and just us regular people, anger when His Temple was abused. God had to have been filled with joy to be able to express to us Who He is and how much He loves us! He gave the message of great joy to those angels to bring!

Then there’s the joy of redeeming us. It took a cross that was not joyful, but it was for the joy set before Jesus, the joy coming up. There would be fellowship between God and His people. We’d be able to tell Him when we hurt, when we’re angry and when we’re rejoicing. Again, this had to bring God joy; His heart is to help us and know us intimately.

So, rejoicing is what we need to do and sometimes it’s difficult. But we do our best to find joy in the little things and in Jesus coming to earth. And whatever our pain is we can take it to God. He’ll listen, He’ll care and He’ll help just like He showed us He would.
