“What joy for those you choose to bring near, those who live in your holy courts. What festivities await us inside your holy Temple” (Psalm 65:4, NLT).

A lot of people have the impression Christians never have any fun. They think we go around either with sad or judgmental expressions on our faces all the time. Although there is way too much judging going on toward those within churches and without, Christians do know how to have fun.

God is the inventor of laughter. Jesus was a man of joy who definitely had a sense of humor and enjoyed a good laugh. Joy is a wonderful result of living close to God, which everyone, Christians included, can enjoy, and heaven is a happy place, full of life, love and laughter. And the festivities mentioned in this verse? Sounds like a real party to me!
