GOD'S WORD: "This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it!" - Psalm 118:24
Right now as you read this, there is a party going on that you are cordially invited to attend. God is hosting this party in honor of His Son Jesus. It is a time of celebration for the victory against sin, death, and the enemy of darkness. And the best part about this party is that you can make the choice to attend right now! It's going on throughout the entire Kingdom (def: wherever God is held sovereign) and several people are attending right now!
See that lady over there with the smile on her face from the radiant joy in her heart? She's at the party!
See the church singing praises and raising their voices in worship? They're having a party!
See the parent facing head-on what seem to be insurmountable odds to provide a nurturing home for their children with grace and the assurance that God is in control? They at the party, too!
So instead of crawling out into the world today focused on all the negative news reports, why not focus on the goodness and faithfulness of God; that we are redeemed and given sufficient grace and blessings for each day! It's about seeing each day as an invitation to a party. It's up to us whether we attend a party or a prison of pity.
You may even know others who could use a good party!
