"Christianity is a religion of joy."
Those are words that I came across that have caused me to pause. Rather than continuing to be stuck in this place, I thought I would share my "pause" with you.
Do you find those words to be true for you?
I agree with where the author was coming from. I know that joy within itself is one of the fruits of the Holy Spirit that is given to us as God's Spirit lives within us. But I also know that joy has been part of those that have been following God from almost the beginning of time. When we read scripture that was given long before Christianity ever existed, joy was so much apart of those who loved God and followed God's teachings. In fact, their worship was saturated with joy! They would find themselves shouting for joy time and time again.
Now...do you find those words to be true for you? When is the last time you shouted for joy when it came to God's presence in your life?
This Sunday, June 20, we will continue to move through our Greatest Hits series with a message on Shout for Joy. But don't hold back those shouts until then. When you capture a glimpse of God's goodness and presence, go ahead and shout it out loud. And then join us Sunday as we Shout for Joy once again.
See you Sunday!
