Week 3, Day 5 – Identity

 Spiritual Discipline to Practice: Celebration

         The Christian life is one of celebration because we have such a good God. Joy is one of the touchstones of our faith. Since nothing can ever separate us from the love of God (see Romans8:35-39), even our worst days have glowing hope. That’s celebration news if I ever heard any! If we actually live in this celebration mode, folks are bound to notice. Therein lay our opportunities to shine the light that is within.

This weekend, determine to celebrate the life of Christ that is within. No matter what is happening – through the good, the bad, and the ugly – celebrate because you have Jesus in your heart. Even if everything in the natural is falling apart, end the conversation with, “but God is still on the throne and totally in control.” Then celebrate that truth. Watch how the light of Christ glows all over those with whom you come in contact.
