Choosing Joy

Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, and you’re listening to Share Life Today.

What’s your favorite thing about the Christmas season? Many people love the cheerful music, the sweet treats, and holiday gatherings with family and friends. And whether this year has been a difficult or wonderful one for you, the joy remains the same if you know Jesus. Why is that? Because no matter what this season brings for you, Jesus is the reason you can have great joy! Spend some time over the course of the next week focusing on the joy of the season – on the joy of the Gospel! And do you know what? If you’ll do that, others will see your joy and will want it, too! Choosing joy at all times — especially in a difficult year — can open up many opportunities to share how Jesus has made all the difference in your life for eternity. You can be the one to bring tidings of great joy to them. If you need help learning how to start a Gospel conversation, you can find out how by visiting our website at
