SIH TOTT ICONAnd the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.”   (Luke 2:10-11)

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.   (Isaiah 9:6)

Since this time of year has been set aside by the world to remember the birth of Jesus, I thought it would be good for us to take one devotional to study the Godly response to the truths about Christ we have learned in Isaiah 9:6.

For our devotion this Christmas morning, let’s look at Isaiah 9:6 along with Luke 2:10-11…

 

TRUTH OF CHRIST EXPLAINED:

Before we begin our Christmas Day, let’s take a moment or two to consider our wonderful Lord that came to the earth on our behalf.  In Isaiah 9:6, we have seen the person and work of the One who was God, who came to this fallen world to save His people from their sins…

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”   (Isaiah 9:6)

Based upon this knowledge , we now turn to Luke 2:10-11 to see what our response to these truths should be on this wonderful day…

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.”   (Luke 2:10-11)

Let’s limit our study for this morning to the phrase “I bring you good tidings of great joy”.   This phrase teaches us two important truths:

1.  The news of Christ’s coming to earth was the news of a “good” event.  In other words it was beneficial to all mankind.

2.  The news of Christ’s coming to earth would result in “great joy” coming into the world.  “Great joy” is a Greek phrase that means “to jump for joy”.  It speaks of a great joy within that shows itself outwardly by our actions.

Based upon this phrase we can learn of the three-fold response to His wondrous coming to the earth…

1.  We are to take time to CONSIDER AND MEDITATE ON THE BENEFITS OF HIS COMING.

2.  We are to cultivate within us ATTITUDES OF APPRECIATION AND JOY FOR THOSE BENEFITS.

3.  We are to DECLARE THROUGH SPEECH AND ACTIONS THE GREAT APPRECIATION AND JOY WE HOLD IN OUR HEARTS.

 

SUMMARY:

As the Lord brings into our lives our family members, friends, acquaintances, and strangers, may we declare to them, through our words and actions, the joy of our hearts and the basis for that joy… our wonderful Lord and His work on our behalf!

Let’s use today as a perfect opportunity to share the joy of Christ with others who may not be receptive to us during other times of the year!

Lord willingly, we will return to our daily devotionals from Proverbs tomorrow morning.

    I like how you use the NT’s passage to illuminate Isaiah 9:6 of what our response ought to be with knowing these truths, thank you Pastor Rob
