Joy to the World

Good morning, Happy Souls!

Bill Keller wrote a wonderful devotional today
that I highly recommend to you. He has given
me permission to copy his e-mails, and I'm sure
he would be happy if you would share this with
people you know as well.


(Luke 2:20)

***CHRISTMAS PASSAGE: The shepherds returned,
glorifying and praising God for all the things
they had heard and seen, which were just as they
had been told. (Luke 2:20)

The reason for joy. This is the time of year
when the word joy is everywhere. Joy to the world.
I have joy in my heart. Joy, joy, joy, joy. Let me
just take a minute today and tell you the reason we
can even say the word joy.

God, our Creator, has opened our eyes and showed us
His plan. He has showed us His Son being born of a
virgin in a manger. He has showed us the example
of the perfect life as we read about Christ's life
in the Gospels. He has given us the one and only
perfect sacrifice for our sins in Christ's death
on the cross. He then verified it all in the
resurrection of our Lord on that 3rd day...assuring
us of everlasting life when we put our faith and
hope in Jesus. I don't know about you, but if that
isn't reason for joy, I don't know what is.

I know many of you are struggling with your finances can still have joy today because God said
you have riches beyond anything this world can
offer! I know many of you are depressed because you
are can still have joy today because God
promised He would never leave you nor forsake you!
I know many of you are having marriage problems.....
you can still have joy today because God can mend
your broken heart and restore your marriage!

I know many of you are fighting addictions to sex,
drugs, alcohol, food, or can still
have joy today because God can deliver you and
set you free! I know many of you are facing
battles at work or can still have
joy today because God said He would fight for you!
I know many of you are dealing with health issues can still have joy today because God is
still in the healing business!

It doesn't matter what the battle is, what the
problem is, you can still have joy today because
Jesus Christ was born, lived, died, and rose on
the 3rd day giving you the assurance that if you
have put your faith and trust in Jesus, when this
short time here on earth is over you will spend
eternity with Him! THAT IS WHERE OUR JOY COMES

Don't let the cares of the world steal your joy
on this Christmas Eve. God is still on the throne
and still hearing and answering the prayers of
His children. He is still working miracles in the
lives of people today!

I love you, care about you deeply, and want you to
know the joy this Christmas that those shepherds
knew on that first Christmas because of all that
God had shown them. Because of His birth, because
of His life, because of His death, and because of
His resurrection, we can have true JOY in our lives
today if we will invite Christ into our hearts and

If you want to know that Joy today, the true joy
that only comes from a relationship with Jesus,
pray and ask God to open your heart, then read
the words at: .
Give your heart and life to Christ today and not
only receive everlasting life, but JOY!!!

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
Bill Keller
