Gifts of Advent: Joy
"I was the first to meet him" 

The gift of advent is the gift of joy the 
joy that angels know and all of us long 

There was gods grace ever present. 

God has always been partial to shepherds. 
Progressive revelation: one angel shows 
up then a multitude. God doesn't 
overwhelm, he is gentle and kind.

The angels wanted to make sure the 
shepherds knew it was for all people for 
all lifetimes. 

Mega Joy
Hebrew means to jump
English to have an emotion evoked by well being
Greek cara calm delight
Great: mega (Greek)
Big or exceeding large loud mighty
Emotion is actually a chemical response in the brain. 

It makes you seek him
It makes you go tell the story
Luke 2:18
