The Joy Command

17 Jul

The Joy Command…

Palm Sunday is Jewish! – A Hebrew holy day foretold by the prophet Zechariah who wrote: “Rejoice greatly O daughter of Zion. Shout O daughter of Jerusalem. Behold, your King comes to you… he is humble and riding on a donkey.”

What does that mean? It means that we, as human beings, actually have a part in fulfilling prophecy. Part of the prophecy is a command to be followed. “Rejoice greatly… shout!”

This is the only proper response to the coming of Jesus. So if Jesus has come into your life, the only proper response is joy – such great joy that you almost have to shout about it.

What’s the evidence of Jesus coming into your life? That you live a life of joy. And notice two keys from the prophecy: Rejoice is a verb and a command. It’s something you choose to do.

Behold – Take your eyes off everything else and truly behold Him. When you see who He really is and how blessed you are – you’ll rejoice. Rejoice greatly for your King has come and you too must fulfill prophecy.

For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness. 1 Thessalonians 4:7

Today, choose to walk in the power of holiness. Seek the Lord and receive His righteousness to transform your life.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
