Sermon By: Pastor Matt Spradlin
A dominant theme of Christmas is Joy. We sing “Joy to World, the Lord has come,” we sing “Come all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant,” we sing “Joyful Joyful we adore Thee.” The angel said to the shepherds, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. Jesus’ whole ministry radiated with joy. Shepherds thought it would be a routine night, but what happened brought inconceivable joy. Christmas is about the joy of Jesus, and Jesus brings us joy in three distinct ways.
