Joy to the World’s third verse seems like the perfect one to perpetually skip. Sin? Sorrow? Thorns? Curses? To the quick glance it seems too morbid and morose for Christmas. But those words reflect the reality of the world and our reality – without Jesus. Jesus did come and He overthrew the curse. That means sin has lost. Sorrows are transient. And thorns are living on borrowed time (even goat heads). Joy to the world!
Come with me as we grow in fellowship with each other and our Savior to whom belongs the Amazing Escape from sin and death and the Amazing Journey into glorious life.
