Exceeding joy - Ian Fraser
Isn’t it amazing how we can find sorrow and joy mixing, as it has for us this last year, and especially in the last few weeks? So it was when the Magi were led to the baby Jesus. In a world of trouble, great joy filled the hearts of those Magi, when they saw how God was leading them to where Jesus was. Matthew’s Gospel records that when they saw the star, they rejoiced with an exceedingly great gladness. It was a special type of joy. It exceeded everything else. That’s what we want to look at this morning. “Exceeding Joy!” We want to learn of a joy that exceeds everything else in our lives.
