Good Christian men have the greatest reason in all the world to rejoice!

Their God became a man because he loves them and wants to dwell with them in flesh forever (Philippians 3:20-21).

No one has half the reason to rejoice that Christian men do!

Why should a Buddhists rejoice in themself?

What reason does a Muslim have to rejoice in Muhammad?

I’ve yet to hear an atheist rejoice at their idea of a godless eternity.

It’s the Christian men I hear rejoicing the loudest, and rightly so, for we have set our hope on the greatest story ever told and have every reason to believe it’s true.

The Eternal God who existed before time began took on human flesh to become like his friends (John 15:15) that he might substitute himself in their place and have his heel crushed (Genesis 3:15) and in so doing, crush the head of that lying serpent who is man’s ancient foe and the source of all pride and wickedness (Revelation 20:2; Genesis 3:4; Psalm 58:3-4). In the grave for three days. Resurrection! (John 20:8-9) He lives forever as Prophet, Priest, and King over all (Matthew 17:5; Romans 8:34; John 18:37) and he invites all to his banquet table for the feast that shall never end (Luke 14:15-24; Revelation 19:9).

News this good deserves gift-giving, song-singing, light-hanging, and eggnog-sipping. Pay no attention to anyone warning about materialism this time of year unless they are out rejoicing you in their Christmas cheer. Walmart is catering to our Christian holiday that’s been happening on December 25 for about 1,500 years. Santa Claus is the un-invited guest who keeps showing up to our party.

Good Christian men, rejoice
With heart and soul and voice;
Give ye heed to what we say:
News! News!
Jesus Christ is born today:
Ox and ass before him bow
And He is in the manger now.
Christ is born today!
Christ is born today!

Good Christian men, rejoice
With heart and soul and voice;
Now ye hear of endless bliss;
Joy! Joy! Joy! Joy!
Jesus Christ was born for this!
He has oped the heav’nly door
And man is blessed evermore.
Christ was born for this!
Christ was born for this!

Good Christian men, rejoice
With heart and soul and voice;
Now ye need not fear the grave;
Peace! Peace!
Jesus Christ was born to save!
Calls you one and calls you all
To gain his everlasting hall.
Christ was born to save!
Christ was born to save!
