Is Jesus laughing?

December 31, 2012 Leave a comment

I know God likes to hear me laugh. Jesus wants me to be joyful and glad.

This is my favorite image of Jesus. Surely He is so happy that He is laughing.
But may the righteous be glad and rejoice before God; may they be happy and joyful. Psalm 68:3

I have a choice. Will I be sad or will I be glad?

God challenges us to see what He is doing. It is a choice. If I look around I can see plenty of evidence to depress me.

But that is not all. God is in a good mood. He is faithful. A miracle is waiting to happen.

I have a choice. Will I be sad or will I be glad?

Jesus challenges people. If He is speaking through you, some are definitely going to get mad.

Jesus is reaching people. If He is speaking through you, some are going to be very glad.

Are you making people mad? Are you making people glad? A sure sign God is speaking through you.

How amazing is God?

September 26, 2012 4 comments

We serve an amazing God. We need to celebrate everything He does for us. Celebrate Him doesn’t quite seem to capture it though. Paul suggests we revel in God. In Greek, the word is χαίρω. It means to rejoice or be glad. It is also used as a salutation or greeting.

Paul is emphatic. In the New American Standard Translation we read it like this. “Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice!”

God is in a good mood. Whoo hoo!! I am glad. That is some good news. It is an amazing day in paradise.

I mean, revel in him! ~~Apostle Paul (Philippians 4:4 The Message)
