Joy to Share

Joy to Share

Dec 23, 2018

Passage: Luke 1:11-25

Preacher: Tim McConnell

Series: Time for Joy

Category: Discipleship, Epistle, Advent

Detail:

Joy is multiplied when we give it away. 

This week's sermon

Joy is a resource that multiplies by sharing it. Zechariah was struck dumb. Elizabeth was kept hidden. The joy could not be shared. But after Elizabeth visited with Mary, and after John was born they could share their joy with everyone. (Luke 1:67-79). Are you struck dumb by the joy of Christmas? Do you hold your tongue and fail to share your joy in the Lord? This is a joy to share. 

About the Time for Joy Series

Christmas is a time for joy. We are told to be joyful. We want to feel joy. We want to share joy with others. But joy can be hard to find sometimes. It isn’t accidental. Joy is something to pursue and guard—to cultivate and value. God gives us the season of Christmas to interrupt our patterns and calendars. It is a time for more celebration and gathering with friends, to treasure family and to remember the birth of Jesus Christ—God’s greatest gift of his own Son. Let’s take time for joy.
