And today, on Christmas day we have GREAT JOY! 

When researching for this series, I was amazed at how many times the word "joy" occurs in the Bible!  Just like all previous Advent posts this season we will begin with basic definitions of each word:

Joy - the emotion evoked by well-being, success, or good fortune or by the prospect of possessing what one desires.  Bliss, cheer, delight, glee. 

Great - remarkable in magnitude, degree or effectiveness


In the Scripture passage below we clearly see the reason that we have GREAT JOY!

And that GREAT JOY continues when Jesus rose from the dead and when He ascended into heaven (see both Bible passages below):


Since we are filled with the Holy Spirit, this GREAT JOY continues throughout our life.  Through this GREAT JOY we share, lift each other up and strengthen one another.



Let's make sure to show our Jesus Joy for the rest of our lives:
Joy & Gladness
Joy & Peace
Overflowing & Joy-Filled
Shout, Sing & Leap for Joy
Great Joy!!
