According to Exodus 5:1, God brought the Hebrews out of Egypt to hold a feast for Him. In Hebrew “chag”, “feast” means to be giddy or joyful. If you’re saved by Messiah, it’s a Passover salvation through the Lamb as well. The reason we’re saved is to glorify God and have joy. God brought you out of the old life so you could bless Him and be joyous. It never says be miserable in the Lord. It says “rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say rejoice!” God didn’t go through coming to earth, suffering, dying and overcoming death so that you would be miserable, depressed, live in compromise or failure and be down. God saved you with a Passover salvation so you would be celebrating His presence, rejoicing, praising, glorifying Him and being exceedingly glad in Him. That’s the power of the Passover Lamb, of Messiah in your life, to live joyously. You can overcome all gloom, all sorrow, all despair, all depression to rejoice in Him. He’s given you the power. So rejoice, be exceedingly glad, for God has done it. You have been saved for joy.
Today’s Mission – Celebrate His presence today. Rejoice in the Lord today at all times and in all things.
