God gave us His Son. The life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ allows us to be forgiven and redeemed. Knowing that God has offered us salvation can provide us joy on earth, no matter what may be happening around us. However, the joy that God gives us now will continue to increase. Beginning with the original Christmas gift of His Son through eternal life in Heaven with Him, we will experience joy that will continue to increase beyond anything we can imagine!
Be joyful in the blessings that God has given you and in those that He has promised!
Thank You for the blessings and joy that You provide in my life. Help me to appreciate and share this joy. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
