Joy in Idaho Falls (12/20/02)

God has blanketed Idaho Falls with beautiful snow!  Diamonds sparkle in the layers of white.  I love this time of year.

Yesterday, in one of the town stores, I stopped in my shuffle through an aisle and listened to a powerful rendition of “Silent Night, Holy Night!”  The name of Jesus Christ is everywhere!  Brothers and sisters, now is the time to joyfully proclaim Christ!  This is the season to revel in His glory!  We fill Christmas letters with the message of Jesus.  We smile at gas and grocery attendants and hand them a gospel, Christmas track.  We invite all our family and friends to the special Christmas programs drawing people to the Savior.  They would think something is wrong with us if we didn’t urgently invite them.  It’s expected.  Also, we meditate on the Babe in front of a lovely manger scene.  And we whisper His name in the ears of our little ones.

“When they (the wisemen) saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.”  Words can’t really describe the fullness of what it is to have a relationship with the King.

Dedicate your weekend to the same purpose that captivated the wise men.  “We are come to worship Him!”
