Advent of Joy

1. Hear well. “faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.” Rom. 10:17

Be aware of being too distracted by the quality of the messengers.

Luke 2:19 says she pondered them; thought about them often. It means in the Greek to connect, to think something out

2. Make Peace: In Luke 2.

Peace on earth for those on whom his gracious kindness rests.

Christmas means that, through the grace of God and the incarnation, peace with God is available; and if you make peace with God, then you can go out and make peace with everybody else. . .

Christmas, therefore, means the increase of peace—both with God and between people—across the face of the world.

3. Fear Not. Fear not; for, behold I bring you good tidings of great joy.

BEHOLD!

Fear not for BEHOLD I bring you good tidings.

Do not be fearing. Be perceiving. For I am telling you the Gospel.
