The Bible tell us to, "Serve the Lord with reverent fear, and rejoice with trembling." Psalm 2:11
Can you really think of a better time than now, a better day than today.. to have, to enJOY, and to celebrate Christ's rule in your life? I can't. In all of history, can you think of even one effective soul-winner who never rejoiced in the Lord? I can’t.. not even one. Have you allowed Christ to be Lord in your life? Are you a believer or are you one that's actually become his disciple?
How can we make our boast in Jesus and plant seeds of truth if we’re just too busy for Him and subsequently failing to rejoice in Him? How can we.. when we’re often uber-occupied with self and what selfish people preoccupy themselves with? Dunno, ain’t gunna happen. What more does God have to say about this?
"Sing joyfully to the Lord, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise Him." Psalm 33:1
"Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice." Philippians 4:4
Let’s rejoice cuz our Lord is a generous God. Yup, He has already been profusely kind and generous!
"Lord, remind me often that You have been
exceedingly generous to me. Help me to extend that
generosity of spirit toward those around me, so that
they may know who You are and rejoice in You." ~ Joe Stowell
“Rejoice always..” 1 Thessalonians 5:16
“..yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior.” Habakkuk 3:18
“We also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” Romans 5:11
“..sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; poor, yet making many rich; having nothing, and yet possessing everything.” 2 Corinthians 6:10
“Further, my brothers and sisters, rejoice in the Lord! It is no trouble for me to write the same things to you again, and it is a safeguard for you.” Philippians 3:1
Are you experiencing real JOY? You know that root word is joy, and if there is no joy consistently exuding from our lives, why would anyone else want what we have? I dare ya.. hear His heart and let the joy of Jesus be infectious for those around you today.
