To reach the newborn King, the wise men may have journeyed nearly 1,000 miles across sweltering deserts. But when they found Jesus, they experienced the joy of His presence. Are others drawn to the Lord because they see His joy in us? 

“When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy.”
Matthew 2:10

  • What are your most joyous Christmas memories?
  • What steps can we take to increase joy in our marriage?
  • What can we do as a couple to share God’s joy with others this Christmas?

To reach the newborn King, the wise men may have journeyed nearly 1,000 miles across sweltering deserts. But when they found Jesus, they experienced the joy of His presence. Most of us don’t cross desert wastelands in our daily life, but as we make our simple journeys through our neighborhoods and communities, does our countenance reflect the joy of knowing the King? Are others drawn to the Lord because they see His joy in us? Regardless of our circumstances, let’s seek the Lord and allow His presence to usher in joy.
