Joy is a true sign of God’s presence through Jesus Christ in our hearts. The giving of gifts is out of a heart of Joy. Christmas connects us to giving more than receiving. God wants his joy, victory, and the spirit of light to be in our hearts.

Jesus created joy; the Holy Spirit produces joy. In Luke chapter one, the angel prepared Mary for the moving of the Holy Spirit. Along with the Holy Spirit, the power of the Highest would overshadow her.
And the angel answered and said unto her, the Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that Holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
(Luke 1:35)

In (Luke 2:10 – 12) the angel told the shepherds, "I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people." Jesus was wrapped in swaddling clothes lying in a manger. He did not have the abilities of a grown man to heal the sick, but the good news through the shepherds proclaimed good tidings and of great joy. This announcement of good tidings of great joy brought hope to a dying world. This was a miracle, the beginning of hope.

We can have Jesus inside of us. (Luke 1:26 – 35). In Luke 1:26, an angel first was sent by God to speak to Mary. In Luke 1:37 we can know that nothing is impossible with God. The Holy Spirit reveals hidden things. In Luke 1:38, Mary said be it unto me according to thy Word. Through the Holy Spirit we can see Jesus. Your life will be witness that Jesus lives in you.
