Psalm 100 encourages us to make a joyful noise, serve the Lord with gladness; come before His presence with singing. We are to enter into His gates with Thanksgiving, and His courts with praise. These assignments are simple, but have a profound impact. Joy changes the whole environment. It transforms hearts and minds. Spirits are lifted up, and thinking is clearer. Laughter fills the air, smiles upon faces, and songs are sung. This is not reserved for a church building, or program. Our joy should accompany us into the homes, businesses, the marketplace, the political arena, and every place the soles of our feet touch.
How much joy have you shared today? Was there a smile on your face, a song in your heart, and on your lips? Did your arrival change the environment, or was it the same old, same old?
Let the world know we are sons and daughters of God, and they can be too. Share the incredible joy we have because of Him. Tell others about the gift of eternal life, goodness and mercy. Explain how we experience His amazing grace and mercy every day, despite all our challenges.
Show them how to rejoice and be glad, for there is no greater joy than knowing our Lord!!! Each day holds the possibility of miracles both great and small. The greatest is the gift of salvation. From that we experience a God who will never leave or forsake us. We see evidence that His promises are true every day. O’ yes, there is so much.
Show someone the great joy you have in your heart. The day is not over. Go ahead, there is still time. Tell someone there is no greater joy than knowing Christ. It is a small miracle that holds the promise of No Greater Joy.
