Let’s have fun today — fun in the Son!
The joy of The Lord is our strength. God is shining over us– let us shine in Him today — and enjoy journey.
So many times in Scripture we are told to be joyful. Psalm 66 verse 1:
“Make a joyful shout to God, all the earth”!
The Rugby world cup is at the moment, there is a lot of joyful noise being made, but if we tell people they are to make a joyful shout to God, we would get some strange looks.
! Peter 1 verse 2: Finishes with the words; :May Grace and peace be multiplied to you”.
This Fun is not the worldly thing, just to tickle us for a happy moment, God’s Grace, is unmerited favor In Christ Jesus, which gives us all sufficiency.
2 Corinthians 12 verse 9: “But He said to me, ‘My Grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness’. Therefore I will most gladly boast all the more about my weaknesses”.
Boast in weakness, doesn’t sound like Fun, but eternal Fun and Joy comes from knowing what we have in Him. Fun comes from assurance of knowing, or future is secure.
No matter what happens around us, we have Eternal security and destiny IN Christ. Colossians 2 verse 2:
“I want their hearts to be encouraged and joined together in love, so that they may have all the riches of assured understanding, and have the knowledge of God’s mystery—Christ”.
This fun is not a fickle thing, that goes away, and we need some kind of fix to bring us back. This eternal Fun comes from, having our being, in The Living Lord. Acts 17 verse 28:
“For in Him we live and move and exist, as even some of your poets have said, ‘For we are also His offspring’.”
Psalm 33 verse 3: “Sing a new song to Him; play skillfully on the strings, with a joyful shout”.
There are a lot of scriptures telling us to be joyful, people are looking, for people who live their convictions, and the most wonderful part, we can live our, in the joy He has bestowed on us. We rally can have fun In The Son, as long as we also revere and worship Him.
