As Christians, we should be the most joyful, decidedly free, glad-hearted, hopeful people that the world ever met.
Your passion for life and your joy, on account of your God, should make people stop and stare at you!
“They ought to think that you are downright strange, indeed!”
Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth. Worship the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the LORD is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.
