Comfort and Joy

"As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you . . . " ~Isaiah 66:13(a)

"But the angel said to them, 'Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; He is Christ the Lord." ~Luke 2:10-11
Christmas, comfort and joy ~ seems as though they were made to go together, doesn't it? These are what God gave to His people when He sent His one and only Son, Jesus, to us as the world's first Christmas present.

Comfort ~ in that we can have the assurance of God's love as our Parent. He will be with us through thick or thin. His Word offers us the best of all parental advice.

Joy ~ in answering His call to accept Jesus as our Savior and receiving the ultimate gift of eternal life with God, our Father. Joy in being adopted as God's child. And joy in knowing that our many sins have been forgiven. 

At Christmas-time, comfort and joy can conjure images of a watching fluffy snowflakes falling outside our window while sipping hot chocolate beside a fire in our warm, cozy home. That's all well and good; but to a Christian, God's comfort and joy is both internal and eternalThey are gifts that no box can contain, no bow could be lovely enough to decorate. They are gifts that are held in our hearts, miraculously multiplied as more and more people accept the Christmas Gift of Jesus Christ.
We live at a time when so many people need the true comfort and joy of Jesus. Be prepared to share the Gift this Christmas.
