Remember the first time you fell in love? You walked around smiling so much your cheeks hurt. Every thought of your significant other brought forth a smile. Their very presence caused your face to light up. People could tell something was different about you.
Unfortunately, Christians can be the most stoic, even mean mugged people. If anyone should be smiling, it should be the believer.
Romans 15:13 says the God of hope is the one who fills us with joy and peace in believing through the power of the Holy Spirit. What a reason to smile! We’re not wishing for a better life, we are assured of our destination because God cannot lie. He is incapable of lying. If today is Thursday but God says its Sunday, guess what? Every calendar on the planet just changed!
What we know is what causes us to smile even through tough situations. People need to see a difference in us. Do we look like we’re in love with Jesus?
