Comfort & Joy

Comfort and Joy are two sensations or feelings associated with Christmas.

But we don’t always feel this way. We may feel alone or literally be alone at Christmas. Or we may experience disappointment. Perhaps, having to isolate, not see family, you miss the train, or Christmas day isn’t quite how you had hoped, the list can go on. These experiences can fill us with disappointment. We are human after all!

All these feels can bring us down. But remember we have been given the gift of Jesus! With Him comes the gift of comfort and joy.

That song ‘God rest ye merry gentlemen’ says:

God rest ye merry gentlemen
Let nothing you dismay
Remember Christ our Savior
Was born on Christmas Day
To save us all from Satan’s pow’r
When we were gone astray
Oh tidings of comfort and joy


This song is telling us that we don’t have anything to dismay, be upset or worried about because we have been saved by Jesus dying on the cross for us.

This may be easier said than done!

But if we keep our eyes on Him we can be filled with the Holy Spirit and by doing so we will be filled with that gift of comfort and joy that the Holy Spirit has for us.

Meditate on his word and the following verses to remind yourself of what scripture says about comfort and joy and to know them in your heart and spirit.

  1. Yes. Jesus is always our comfort and joy. Our worldly celebrations are not meant to be our comfort and joy and often are not. Often worldly things bring us chaos, upheaval, hurt, and frustration.

    1. Yes, such a true statement. Its so sad how commercialised Xmas has become, and vecause of this it’s bought everything uve just said. We need to be encouraging one another with the gospel. Thank u Jodi. Xx
