  • One of the reasons we celebrate Christmas is to help us remember who we really are.
  • We are Christians who believe the word of the Lord will stand forever.  We believe this Word became flesh and was incarnated to us in Jesus Christ.  And we believe that means Jesus Christ stands with us forever.  That is our source of joy.
  • If God was not powerful, there could be no salvation.  And if He was not gentle, the only word from God would be judgment.
  • Joy doesn’t come from a quest or from getting what you want.  You don’t find joy.  Joy finds you.
  • It is also true that we bring joy to God by surprising Him from time to time.  We have the capacity to move the heart of God – to offer God a surprising gift of joy.
Pastor Jim Spon | Isaiah 40:6-11
