Joy to the World - The Lord is come.

Yes indeed, this gives us reason to rejoice. He has come to make His blessings flow AS FAR AS The Curse is found!!

Joy to the world – No more let sins and sorrows grow, Nor thorns infest the ground; He comes to make His blessings flow Far as the curse is found.

Blessings will flow, are flowing, as far as the curse is found. That’s everywhere and all the time.

Just to be perfectly clear – I do NOT mean that God cursed you or your child for some specific sin either one committed. I do NOT mean that. I mean the God cursed the whole creation in general with thorns and sweat and labor and pain, because Adam sinned against God by disobeying His clear command to not touch that tree(Genesis 2:15-3:19; curse to the serpent in verse 14; to the woman in verse 16 and to the man in verse 17). So all of us now live in the world of trouble. Certainly death is one out-working of that curse.

Now, in the coming of Jesus, God’s full character is incarnated in this baby Son who is the One the Father has designated to bring reconciliation between the Creator and the creatures. The reconciler and savior has come into your broken experience to bring healing and hope. The curse will be covered with blessings. Joy to the cursed world because the Savior has come! Joy to you. Even in the midst of grief, may there be moments, little lightening bolts, of joy breaking through to comfort you.
