So what is it about Christmas that makes it merry? Well, there are different perspectives on that. For instance, consider the world’s perspective as currently seen in TV commercials. Happiness and joy is waking up Christmas morning to that shiny new dream car! If it’s not a car, then it’s the perfect piece of jewelry or the house perfectly decorated. I could go on and on, but you have probably seen the ads too.
Let’s consider another perspective of happiness and joy. The Bible says that Jesus brings light to people living in darkness (Isaiah 9:2, Matthew 4:16). This refers to spiritual darkness that causes emptiness and hopelessness.
Jesus brings light that fills up that empty place and ignites hope in the heart. What could possibly cause more joy than that? Do you see His Light? He is there for you. If there is any darkness around you or within you, ask Him to come into your heart and fill you with His Joy and Light!
