O Come, All Ye Faithful, Joyful and…Wait…Joyful? Really?

December 23, 2012

“O come, all ye faithful,

joyful, and triumphant!

O come ye, o come ye,

to Bethlehem.”

I don’t always feel joyful.

Maybe you don’t either.

Maybe there’s a reason.

The adult Jesus said that he told us everything he did “for a purpose: that my joy might be your joy, and your joy wholly mature.”  (John 15:11, The Message version.)

Jesus wants our joy to be about more than our feelings.

Even during The Weekend Before Christmas.

Maybe even especially now.

Really.
