Saturday Song: Manfred Mann's Earthband, "Joybringer"

I love the happy message this song by one of my favourite artists brings. No doubt about it, we all need somebody to bring us joy.

Check out this positive song here.

Certainly Paul understood the joy which the good news of Christ brings to the world. Romans 10:15 (KJV) reads, "And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!"

We also need to emulate our Lord. Luke 8:1 (KJV) says, "And it came to pass afterward, that he went throughout every city and village, preaching and showing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God: and the twelve were with him,"

Jesus also quoted Isaiah 61:1 (KJV)which reads, "The spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;"

And Solomon wrote in Proverbs 25:25 (KJV), "As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country."

We also must encourage one another. As Paul wrote in 1 Thessalonians 5:11 (KJV), "Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do."

On Monday, I'll post about what glorification means. It's another word often spoken without people properly understanding it.
