Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory, obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls. - 1 Peter 1:8–9 (ESV) The angels told the shepherds that their message was 'Good news with great joy.' We throw around the word 'joy' in our decorations and songs of the season, but what is 'joy'? Is it the warm feelings and happiness that we are to find in this season? Does it come from the gifts or celebrations we attend? What happens when the season isn't filled with joy but sadness? How do we find it again? This week we continue in our Advent celebration by looking at the theme of Joy. Take a few minutes to read through 1 Peter 1. These people were scattered and struggling. They feared, wondering if what they heard and believed was worth their lives. In response, Peter points them to true joy. Come this Sunday and see how he points us to find true joy in this Advent season. Also, this is a great week to invite someone to join us.
