This was the crux of the message in church this past weekend; joy. We settle for what we think is holiness, when "infinite joy" is offered. We are to represent Christ right. I am His representative here on earth. Following Christ is not a solemn, joyless duty. That is not the message of the Bible. Jesus laughs.
I want to laugh out loud more often too.
"...because the joy of the Lord will make you strong/The joy of God is your strength!." Nehemiah 8:10
