Joy to the world, the Lord is come! Let earth receive her King. For many, Christmas might spark this question, "What's the big deal about the baby in the manger?" The "Big Deal", the reason we sing...no shout...Joy to the World, is because of the baby in the manger. Because of the baby in the manger, God is with us. God is where we are.
As we prepare to close out 2020, now more than ever, we need the truth of God with us! God in our homes, God in the doctors office, God at our workplace, God in our family struggles. The joy of Christmas is knowing that wherever we are, whatever fears, doubts, questions or struggles we might be experiencing...God is always near us. God is always rooting for us. God is our biggest fan and because of this, we are forever on God's mind and in his plans.
"She will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel, which means 'God with us.'" Matthew 1:23
