The theme for Christian Writers blog chain this month is joy. It's ironic for the topic to be joy when this month I don't have much to be joyful about. I don't have a job, my family is without transportation and the list could go on, but I wanted to find one thing this month that I could celebrate in joy.
The one thing I can be joyful about is that Christ died for my sins, so I could live. He is my joy this month. Yesterday was Palm Sunday, a day many celebrated by re-creating the entry of the Jesus in the Jerusalem on the back of a donkey. There is joy in that.
There is joy in Good Friday. Yes, there is joy in the crucifixion of our Lord. He died for us. He made the ultimated sacrifice. We can celebrate with joy in our hearts, because we know on Easter Sunday He arose from the dead.
Although, my joy may be faltering this month, I am still joyful in hope. Joy does exist. It's in your heart and soul. It's in Christ who dies on the cross for you.
