Have A Joyful Christmas

I have grown to enjoy the season. I like seeing cheerful decorations, spending with family and friends, and eating Christmas goodies. My favorite part of Christmas, by far, though, is listening to carols and Christmas songs, one of my favourites is, “Joy to the World!” 

Isaac Watts’ eighteenth-century carol based on Psalm 98, celebrates the coming of . The joy of the Saviour’s coming should be resounding throughout all of creation, and the fields, the hills and plains “repeat the sounding joy.” This is good news for the entire world! 

What’s so good about this news sang each Christmas? Isaac Watts answers that question in the third verse of this classic where he declares that Jesus has come to deal with the curse of human sin and rebellion. Through his death and resurrection, Jesus brings the blessing as “far as the curse is found.” Hallelujah! 

This Christmas as you sing this carol “joy to the world’ don’t miss this theme mentioned throughout the song. To be released from to sin and the power of death over us, we are now freed to live with joy, to love and our neighbour, and to cultivate the earth God has given us. So let’s sing and shout throughout the with urgency and unity the joyul good news: “The Lord is come, let earth receive it’s King”! 

I bring you good news that cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of a Saviour has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. — 2:10-11 

Let’s Pray 

Yahweh, we praise You for coming to release us from the ­power of sin and death. God,  us to live in ways that proclaim the wonders of Your love and the joy that Jesus brings. We give thanks for this joyful holiday when we can celebrate our Saviour and His love for us. With joy we pray, in Christ’s Name! Amen.
