When is the last time you laughed so hard and has so much fun it almost hurt?
That is the scene I imagine when I read Nehemiah 12:43
And they offered great sacrifices that day and rejoiced, for God had made them rejoice with great joy; the women and children also rejoiced. And the joy of Jerusalem was heard far away.
There is great joy and it is heard from a long ways away. I wish that is what the church and all christians were like. That it is so much fun it’s contagious and make people envious. I want to be that kind of christian. I want my family and house to be that way.
God, help us to obey you and give us great joy in doing so!
