Rejoice in Him: HE > me
Where does your joy come from? From having a partridge in a pear tree? Or from getting your jingle bell rock on? Nothing wrong with either of these, even though the first is just strange and the second might scare me to see! During Advent, it seems like every song and every ad is promising us joy this time of year. But how do we get in on all this “Joy to the World?” Most of the old Christmas carols, if we listen carefully, tell us that joy has nothing to do with what’s perched in your pear tree. It has to do with recognizing and receiving and rejoicing in the Lord who has come. Why? Because HE > me.
His and yours,
