This is the season to rejoice; to be reminded of God's greatest gift in sending his son - Immanuel (God with us). We are finishing our readings from Philippians chapter 4 this week. Paul encourages his readers to "rejoice always". How are you doing when it comes to rejoicing in any, and every, situation? James steps it up a notch in James 1:2, saying "Consider it pure joy... when we face trials of many kinds." 

It's easy to rejoice when life is going our way, but rejoicing as Paul did from a dark prison cell is a different matter. Let's give thanks in this season to the Lord for all He has blessed us with, rejoicing in the trials, and the blessings. Merry Christmas!
