CONTAGIOUS JOY

Jennifer Cole

Joy is the distinguishing mark of a Christian! (As is...love, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, faithfulness and self-control.) But there is something about JOY...that inner happiness and expectation that shines out through the eyes.

It stands out as something so significant...and so “different”...in this day-and-age. In fact, true joy is visible, desirable and even contagious!

Joy is not something you can manufacture in your life. There aren’t enough self-help books, motivational memes or talk-show hosts who can pump your heart full of joy. True joy comes from spending time with the Lord, knowing Him and trusting His words! When these things are in place, He infuses you with joy, and it radiates in your life from the inside out.

And, it’s worth mentioning here that joy isn’t just for good times. In fact, the joy that God fills our hearts with stays steady in both good times and the not-so-great times. For instance, even in tough times like times of grief, there is joy. The joy of knowing a glad and eternal reunion is up ahead. And since life on earth is literally a vapor...there is joy in knowing that no matter how rough life on earth can be at times...our present sufferings are nothing compared to the joy and glories that are to be revealed -- in this life and the one to come!

Later this week as we celebrate Good Friday and then Easter Sunday...I’m reminded of the grief the apostles, believers and followers of Christ experienced when Jesus died on the cross to bear our sins. Even in the midst of that grief, there was such great JOY...Jesus had the joy of knowing that the plans laid before the foundations of the world would be fulfilled to perfection, and mankind could be reconciled to God! And Christ followers knew that on the third day He’d rise again and be seated at the right-hand of the Father.

>>Jesus and His life on earth gave us the ultimate example of how joy can be present in our lives, regardless of circumstances.

Living in the joy of the Lord gives us strength. And, it’s contagious and draws others to the Lord too. So my friend...today, I encourage you to let the joy of the Lord fill you up and distinguish your life!

Say This: “Father, thank You that Jesus came to this earth, died on the cross for my sins and rose again. I invite You Lord to be the Lord of my life and I thank You that my sins are forgiven! Lord, please fill me with your joy each day...may that joy be contagious and help distinguish my life and draw others to You. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”
