In today’s day & age everyone is always trying to advance. Whether we want more things, more money, more time, or more friends, we are all trying to have more than what we already have.
But in reality… we already have everything we need: JESUS!!!!
When God sent His son to earth He was giving us the only thing that we needed to live. Because once someone accepts Jesus into their lives as Lord and Savior, they will live forever.
But.. how are we going to share this good news, and this great joy if we Christians in the room aren’t showing Jesus??
My question is: are you showing the joy of the Lord everywhere you go, or are you constantly trying to gain something that will never satisfy you?
If you said yes to that last part then my response is this – don’t postpone joy. Because Jesus is joy. And He is right at your fingertips if you’ll just take a hold of Him!
So many people in this world look to other things to give them joy. But Jesus is our true source of true joy.
As we go into this new year, I encourage each of y’all to look to Jesus for joy instead of earthly things. Instead of watching a show or reading a book or going out – I challenge you to pray, read God’s word, or worship when you are feeling down.
Once we start to find joy in Jesus, we can share the joy of Jesus.
So, don’t postpone joy because you can have it right now!
“And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”
