The Carols of Christmas 4 Joy to the World

Luke 2:10-11 by Mark Smith
Series:The Carols of Christmas

Christmas and the feeling of joy should be inseparable when we realize what happened at the first Christmas. Joy was the theme of the angel when he announced Jesus' birth to the shepherds, and joy was experienced by everyone who saw the baby Jesus and understood who he was. The carol Joy to the World is sometimes said not to be a song about Christmas. While it speaks of things that are not yet universally and fully experienced, it is firmly based on Luke 2:10-11 and rightly expresses our joy at the birth of Jesus. We conclude our reflections on the carols of Christmas with this beloved Christmas carol.
