Based on the angel’s message to the shepherds that first Christmas night, the most joyful message to ever be announced is the coming of Jesus. So who is Jesus? And why is the message so great? The more you spend time reading God's word, the more you will know who He is. Jesus says to "ask, seek and knock and it will be given to you." Don't settle for a limited view of His greatness but dig into the scriptures daily and see how infinitely amazing Jesus is. Know that Jesus is ALL-sufficient for your joy. If you needed something else plus Jesus, then Jesus would not be sufficient. If Jesus is not sufficient then He is not superior over all things and would be lacking as the main joy-giver for humanity. If He were lacking in anything that we need then He would cease to be God. As John Piper says, "God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him." In other words, God wants to satisfy those who come to Him hungry because then we glorify Him all the more. So really, if Jesus is not sufficient for our joy its not because He is INSUFFICIENT in Himself but that we are lacking in our understanding of who He is.
This Christmas may we understand the greatness of this message and experience the all-sufficient JOY of Jesus.
