"But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people." Luke 2:1o
Joyous Christmas to you!
Here is another reason why the good news of Christmas brings reason for joy.
Christmas brings the joy of His presence, and the joy of His pardon, and the joy of His peace. Anyone of those is reason enough alone - but ALL of them are available to you through Christ!
Find joy in His power!
It was the power of God that caused an elderly couple to conceive and give birth to John the Baptist, the greatest prophet ever! From their weakness came the strength of God! From their impotence sprang a miracle! His power brought Zachariah and Elizabeth great joy!
Because "nothing is impossible with God"! That is His power!
Through the power of God a virgin gave birth to the Son of God without ever knowing a man! It is impossible, but it happened! Because "nothing is impossible with God"! He has the power to accomplish everything He wishes to accomplish. And he can do it through weak human beings! Mary found exceeding joy through the power of God at work in her!
Christmas demonstrates the amazing power of God! Nothing is impossible because of His great power! And that power resides in you when you walk in Christ and His Spirit!
Perhaps you are facing some difficult challenges as you celebrate Christmas 2010. Find joy in the power of God! Take joy in the knowledge that "nothing is impossible for God"!
