Where do you see the joy in Christmas?
- Music: Joy to the World!
- Shared times with family and friends
- Getting (or giving) the perfect gift
- Good news announced by angels
We associate the angels with joy. After all, the angelic announcement started with “I bring you good news of great joy” (Luke 2:10 ESV).
Look at Scripture more carefully and you encounter another image of rejoicing angels:
Luke 15:7 (ESV)
Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.
This Advent, seek and celebrate heaven’s joy.
