Everywhere you go this time of year you see or hear people talk about “joy” and “peace.” They are the acceptable messages of Christmas to humanist heathens.
Unfortunately, Christmas happy thoughts do not produce joy or peace. In fact, Christmas may very well demonstrate a total lack of such things in people.
The birth of Christ did indeed bring good tidings of joy and peace. He was the Gospel in the flesh. But His arrival does not produce peace and joy for everyone. Only one group gets peace and joy.
“Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.”
The only way a person will have joy and peace at Christmas is if they believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who died for the sins of the world, was buried and rose again and was seen of many witnesses, just as it was foretold in Scripture.
All other peace and joy is merely a sham, smoke and mirrors. It will soon vanish and you’ll be left with emptiness bringing angst and sadness. God does not give peace the way the world does–when He brings it, it lasts.
Come and get it.
