Let’s Have a Party!

Everybody like to have fun!

Most everyone likes a party!

Parties are supposed to be a time of happiness and joy with friends, family and loved ones.  Sometimes people sing out with joy and laughter; it’s a time to “let your hair down” and have some good old-fashioned fun.

Parties have food and goodies; some parties have fancy cakes… yum!

Most people don’t approach worship the way they think of a party; I think that’s sad. Don’t get me wrong, I understand about reverence and orderly worship, and maybe a party isn’t the perfect comparison.  But as for the simple act of expressing joy the comparison holds pretty strongly.

Do you truly believe that as a Christian you are one of the Lord’s redeemed?

If you answer yes, how can you not be filled with joy, thanksgiving and praise?  The Bible offers quite a bit of direction in this, here’s just one short passage…

 Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD; 
   let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. 
 Let us come before him with thanksgiving 
   and extol him with music and song.

(Psalm 95:1-2)

This week in worship, let’s lift our voices with joy in singing God’s praise, with thanksgiving in our hearts let’s offer up praise as a sweet sacrifice that is wholly pleasing to God! Praising God, filled with joy, surrounded by family and friends… worship is the best party ever.
