Be a Joy-Magnet!

Have you had your Joy Juice today?  It’s simple to find but not always easy to swallow!

Most of us would say that we enjoy being joyful!  Laughter lifts our spirits and a sincere smile comes from a heart of joy.  When you see someone with a sparkle in their eyes, a grin on their face and uplifting words coming from their lips, then you are drawn to that person.  On the contrary…when approaching a person who dons a scowl and a wrinkled brow, one whose words spew of criticism and negatively, we are tempted to turn on our heels and run in the opposite direction!

Which kind of person are you?  The one that people enjoy being around?  Or the one that puts people on the run?  This week let’s talk about being a “joy magnet”.  Becoming more like Christ in our daily walk, certainly adds the right kind of attraction. 

Each of us was created for a purpose.  In Isaiah 43:7 God says that we were created for his glory. What does it mean to glorify God?  

  •   It means to bring Him honor through what we say, how we act, and how we think. 
  •  To glorify God means to acknowledge His glory and to value it above all things.
  •  To glorify God means we strive to make Him known to others and
  •   To have a heartfelt gratitude, a strong faith, love, obedience and a desire to know Him better.

Be a joy-filled, magnetic Christian---attracting others to God as your glorify Him in your daily walk.
