Why Not Choose Joy?

Traveler’s Tip #355 
If you have no joy, there’s a leak in your Christianity somewhere. 
                                                                                                                  - Billy Sunday 

 

Just a quick word… 

Love 
Joy 
Peace 
Patience 
Kindness 
Goodness 
Faithfulness 
Gentleness 
Self Control 

This is the fruit of God’s Spirit scripture tells us about. This is the character of God. This is Jesus. The real Jesus. 

Almost everywhere I look in the world today I see the opposite of every one of these attributes. Culture, entertainment, politics, and, sadly—and sometimes most glaringly—the Church. Why? He is so close. Why do we insist on seeking and glorifying the carnage of chaos when peace is right here? Why turn our backs on the God Who loves us and wants only the best for us? 

Please don’t trade the Beautiful Truth for a shadow. Right is wrong and wrong is right… It may be a different garden—but it’s the same old lie. 

But God is Love. God is truth. 

Not my truth, not your truth—the Truth. 

Don’t follow a politician. Don’t follow a movement. Don’t follow a church. Don’t follow a man. 

Follow Jesus. 

Joy is ours for the taking! 

I’m in, how about you? Let’s ride this life out together. And at the end, arms wide open, we’ll crash onto that glorious shore and never hurt again. 

Fair winds travelers, 

Buck

    Good word! That deep joy that is so ingrained by the presence of the Holy Spirit that it floats up in the face of anything that we face. The Joy of the Lord is our strength!
