Rejoice because your name is written in heaven.
Rejoice because we are His. Rejoice because He has given us life, life now, and life for all eternity. Rejoice because we know the source of our life and our hope.
Rejoice because God has made us His very own. Rejoice because He loves us! Rejoice because He is good. Rejoice because His mercies are new every morning. Rejoice because He is Faithful!
Rejoice because our identity is not found in what we do. Our identity is found in who we are. We are His. That’s where our joy comes from! Isn’t that reason to Rejoice?
In Philippians 4:4, he reminds us several times to “Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice.” This is because God knows that our lives are more abundantly blessed and fruitful when we are saturated with his joy, enthusiasm, thankfulness and hope.
“Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.” (Philippians 4:4)
God means for His word to be an encouragement, refreshing, and challenge to us. To know God’s heart for each of us and what He did on our behalf, should put new energy and urgency behind all that we say and do.
Tell someone what God has done for you.
Heavenly Father, Thank You for creating heaven. A place where we will spend eternity with You and our loved ones who have accepted Your invitation. Help us live with a joyful heart always rejoicing and sharing the hope we have of eternal life with others. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
