A reminder for today
Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again—rejoice! (Philippians 4:4)
The shops has already started with their Christmas decorations and the business world is preparing for a festive season where everyone will spend their money on gifts and decorations. It is the season to be jolly. It is also the season where the enemy has succeeded in so many ways to steel the true joy from Christmas. For so many Christmas comes once a year as they rush to the shops and act all happily as they all miss the truth.
For us Christmas is just another reminder of the true joy we have in the Lord. Christmas should come around 365 days a year, because each morning we wake up it is a gift and we start our day with Jesus Christ. So we celebrate Him every moment of every day for the real joy is in the Lord. It is in His grace and in His love and in His miracles that we live with each day.
So our challenge is to always be full of joy in the Lord. To rejoice and to live with that joy each day. To show this joy to all as we walk in His Word with His strength and His blessings. We let this joy shine as the Lord reigns down on this world and we see Him in all. It is what we know and how we are different because of the truth that we know now. We are set free by this and therefore our joy is ever lasting, not just once a year.
Lord, we thank you for all that you have done for us and we rejoice in you today as we are filled by your joy and truth that sets us free from this world. In Jesus name.
Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
