I love a good party. I’ve been to a few spirited celebrations, but nothing like the one they threw in Great Britain over 20 years ago.
In June, 2002, Queen Elizabeth II celebrated 50 years as monarch of Great Britain. A Golden Jubilee Festival was held in her honor, as London’s ceremonial mall was filled with 20,000 performers, while one million Brits looked on.
How does God feel about parties?
When I was a kid, I had this image of God as a party pooper. A kill-joy.
But that is not the God of the Bible. Jesus is pro-joy. He said, “These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full” (John 15:11).
Recovery Step: Most of us have never met. But I know this about you. God wants you to have joy.
