Scripture of the Day - July 2, 2012

1 Thessalonians 5:16  Rejoice evermore.

Jesus didn't rejoice when He was on the earth. He wasn't a jovial character going from town to town jesting and slapping shoulders. He was here to do a very serious job. He came to die that we might live. He wept over all those who had rejected Him...not for Himself but for their sakes he wept. They were damning their souls by rejecting Him. 
Oh but for all those who accept Him....His greeting is ALL HAIL! (Matthew 28:9)  All Hail means...1) to rejoice, be glad 2) to rejoice exceedingly 3) to be well, thrive. We can rejoice, we can be well and thrive because Jesus has gotten us the victory over sin and death...and what a reason to rejoice! 
Whooooweeeee! We have something that the world can't give and the world can't take away!
