Then we were filled with laughter, and we sang happy songs. Then the other nations said, “The LORD has done great things for them.” The LORD has done great things for us, and we are very glad. Psalm 126:23 (NCV)
We love to celebrate and look for that opportunity whenever we can. We cheer for our favorite sports team. We celebrate graduations and upcoming births. We gather together and celebrate holidays. We love getting together with family and friends. We celebrate a new phase of life or memories from the past. Each celebration is something we can look back on and see that it is filled with laughter and love. We enjoy celebrating the good things that have happened to us and others we love.
Sometimes we forget to celebrate the best thing that ever happened for us. The Creator of the universe sent His only Son (Jesus) so we could spend eternity with Him. He willingly paid for all our mistakes knowing that some of the people throughout history would never come to know Him as Lord and Savior. He chose to die for us so that we could live with Him forever. Even though we may face struggles on a daily basis, in the end, we will spend eternity with the one who would rather die for us than to live without us. That is something to truly celebrate!
