“We had to celebrate and rejoice, because this brother of yours was dead but has come back to life-he was lost but has been found.”
Luke 15:32 CJB
What are we celebrating? Life with our Father in Heaven or life in the world? Maybe we don’t have riches and houses, maybe we have issues and problems either way where and what do we put all your energy into? Celebrate our earthly joy or our earthly misery?
“No servant can be slave to two masters, for he will either hate the first and love the second, or scorn the second and be loyal to the first. You can’t be a slave to both God and money.”
Luke 16:13 CJB
We all really need to ask ourselves who do we serve? Its’s not a new question Joshua asks it in: “Joshua 24:15” Who are you going to serve? Elijah asks it in: “1 Kings 18:21” How long are you going to jump back and forth between two positions?
Jesus makes it clear here you can’t serve both!
“Serve Adonai with gladness. Enter His presence with joyful songs.”
Psalm 100:2 CJB
Today, let’s choose to celebrate the Father, let’s rejoice in the fact that He saved us and not get caught up in the trappings of the world! Things are always better when we celebrate our Father in Heaven! Have a blessed day rejoicing in the LORD!
