It’s Christmas Eve, time to be done with the shopping and preparations. It’s time to settle back and enjoy things. Okay, so you may not have to do much shopping and all that, and maybe you’ve already been enjoying Christmas holiday.
But it’s Christmas Eve, and what can you do to bring the Spirit of Christmas and Joy into your house? Or into the car as you drive? Or with your friends as you play.
That Christmas Spirit? Joy? You don’t have to feel like you have to create all that joy on your own. The Holy Spirit is with you and produces Joy within in you. Call on the Spirit to help you to be a light to others and to create Joy in people around you today.
22 But the fruit that the Spirit produces in a person’s life is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control.
Galatians 5:22-23 (ERV)
Dear Holy Spirit, Bring a spirit of joy and peace to me today, and show me how to bring it to those around me too. Amen.
