Friday. Week 2.
When Heror encounterd Jesus the bible said he was "disturbed." He began to scheme and plan and stress to protect his world. The bible goes on to say that because Herod was disturbed all of Jeruselem was disturbed with him. On the other side, when the Magi encountered Jesus the bible says there overjoyed. They found exactly what they were looking for and with it came peace and satisfaction.
Which sounds better -- disturbed, threatened, scared, scheme … or … OVERJOYED
In the original language it took three words to make up this one word: Exceeding Great Joy
Exceeding meaning more than expected or a high degree of; Great meaning great things; and Joy meaning calm delight ... satisfaction.
When we experience Jesus personally he gives us exactly what we need. No matter what is happening this Christmas season, because of what happened, Jesus is enough for us in any situation.
