The Bible makes a point of telling us that when the wise men saw the star, “they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy” (Matt 2:10). They knew that provided they followed that star, they would get to see Jesus.
Christians today know something of that same joyful anticipation, for the moment of Christ’s second coming is fast approaching when they too will get to see Him face to face. His second advent is getting nearer and nearer.
Are you filled with exceedingly great joy this Christmas as you anticipate that event? Is getting to see Him, the joy of your heart?
Today, God is still pointing people to the One born to us in that old city of David.
Jesus is His unique Saviour for sinners – God’s gift to every soul that will believe, and the only One that will give you exceedingly great joy this Christmas.
