Sing  for Joy  in the LORD

Psalm 33:1  says,

Sing  for joy  in the LORD,  O you righteous ones;
Praise is becoming  to the upright.

Because  our long-promised Savior  has come  and fulfilled every prophecy  regarding His life,  suffering,  death,  and resurrection,  we have every reason  to  “Sing for joy  in the LORD”.     Just believing  in Jesus  makes us  “righteous ones” in God’s eyes.

Our joy  is not over tons  of presents,  Santa Claus,  decorations,  songs about jingle bells,  and snow.     Much rather,  our true joy is  “in the LORD”.     God has done wonderful things  to bless us  in Christ Jesus.     We not only see  God’s marvelous power  in all of creation,  but we see  His power  in having Jesus born  according to His prophecies  —  born of a virgin  —  in Bethlehem  —  receiving gifts  —  coming out of Egypt  —  being called a Nazarene  —  etc.

All that  and more  drives home the truth  that Jesus really is  eternally God our Savior  —  He really does  take away  absolutely all  our sins  —  He alone  really does make us worthy  of eternal life  in heaven  —  He really is  King of kings  and Lord of lords  —  He can be depended on  to shepherd us  through this life  —  He really is  God Almighty  with no beginning  and no end.

Let’s “sing  for joy  in the LORD”  because our Savior  more than deserves  every ounce  of our praise  —  and then some.     With  “joy”  we say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord Jesus,  thank You  for humbling Yourself  to save us  from our sins.”

Love,
Margaret
