but the angel said to them, “Don’t be afraid! I am here with good news for you, which will bring great joy to all the people. Luke 2:10 (GNT)
Everyone on earth has a reason to live joyfully every day of their life in this world no matter where they are located geographically, socially, or economically.
We don’t have to change location or status and go to a better place or position, we don’t have to first go to heaven, nor do we have to first have this or the other to experience joy.
Because Joy unspeakable Himself, the true source and cause of real joy has come from heaven to earth to all people everywhere.
Jesus is the Joy of the Father; He’s the Joy of heaven.
In Jesus, in His coming to us on earth the Father was and is still saying to us that we are accepted before Him, we are known and valued. We are welcome in the Father’s presence where there’s fullness of Joy. Psalms16:11.
In and because of Jesus we are all God’s Abigails. Abigail means father’s joy.
Get in on and enjoy the same Joy that God is enthroned in as you embrace and celebrate Jesus, and his coming to earth to save us.
