Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice! (Philippians 4:4)
We are commanded to rejoice in the Lord. To rejoice in the Lord always.
We are to keep on rejoicing. (1 Peter 4:13)
Christmas is a great day to rejoice, a day to celebrate good news of great joy. (Luke 2:10)
Today we rejoice about unimaginable, eternal, stupendous good news!
God is with us (Immanuel) (Matthew 1:23),
God came in the flesh and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory (John 1:14),
Jesus showed us the Father, being the radiance of His (the Father’s) glory and the exact representation of His nature (Hebrews 1:3),
Jesus is the Savior of all who believe (John 3:15).
These are truths, yet beyond our ability to grasp fully. But let’s try!
This year, let’s determine to keep on rejoicing.
