In the days of Jesus the Jewish people waited with great expectation for the coming of the messiah and the Joy he would bring. Today our own culture builds their idea of great anticipation around presents, parties and stories of Santa Claus, but these these priorities and dreams certainly do not result in the great joy which we are seeking. Great joy apart from God will always fall short of the mark. True joy is built on the promises of God and His ultimate fulfillment of our deepest needs.
