There was a lot of joy about Jesus coming, just as there is a lot of joy and anticipation as we get closer to Christmas Day! When Jesus was born in Bethlehem, there was a celebration that topped all celebrations; God had planned it before He even created the world. The good news of Jesus’ birth brought joy! A huge crowd of angels appeared to the shepherds, celebrating and praising God. The ultimate way God brings us joy is through Jesus!
