Joy – noun, a source or cause of delight. Angels appeared to a group of shepherds and brought good tidings of great joy! The shepherds went to Bethlehem and found the baby Jesus just as the angels described, wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger. They heard about Jesus, sought after him, then shared the good news with others. And believers have been doing the same ever since.
