Joy to the world the Lord is come, let earth receive her king, let every heart prepare him room, let heaven and nature sing, let heaven and nature sing, let heaven and nature sing.
I read these words and ask myself how aware are we of the plan of salvation today? The whole purpose of God becoming man in a humble and lowly way to be a true propitiation for our sins.
In this world of cultural and moral relativism and the perpetuation of political correctness which is tolerant of seemingly everything accept Christianity. I want to, with loving passion and compassion, say earth receive your king, people make room for Him in your heart. He loves us, became one of us, gave himself for us, and is the fulfillment of Gods love our purpose and the meaning of life.
Joy will not come by the pacification of immorality or the attempt of man to be God or of the acquiring the most stuff. Joy comes from knowing who was sent to us by the deceleration, “Joy to the World!”
By the very act of His being sent, joy accompanied Him. To accept Him is to have Joy. Not a mere happy feeling of emotion but a deep fulfillment and deep spiritual assurance of peace in our heart.
Thank you Jesus for your love, compassion, humility, care and kingship. Because you first loved me I love you.
If you don’t know Jesus today, Ask him to reveal himself to you. Ask him to forgive your sins, confess Him as your lord and savior and receive His gift of grace. He loves you. Make room the king wants to live with you.
