Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Philippians 4:4-5

I am not a “cheerleader” type person. I don’t often get “giddy.” The rejoicing Paul writes of here is not that kind of joy. In fact, the description he offers is “gentleness.” We rejoice because God is with us and (as he has promised) he will provide for our every need. We rejoice because Jesus suffered hell in our place. Heaven is ours! To live this day with Jesus is my greatest joy! Maybe I will jump up and shout, “Woohoo!” Maybe I won’t. May others see my gentleness.
