We serve an amazing God. We need to celebrate everything He does for us. Celebrate Him doesn’t quite seem to capture it though. Paul suggests we revel in God. In Greek, the word is χαίρω. It means to rejoice or be glad. It is also used as a salutation or greeting.
Paul is emphatic. In the New American Standard Translation we read it like this. “Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice!”
God is in a good mood. Whoo hoo!! I am glad. That is some good news. It is an amazing day in paradise.
I mean, revel in Jesus! ~~Apostle Paul (Philippians 4:4 The Message)
