“Shout for joy, O daughter of Zion! Shout in triumph, O Israel! Rejoice and exult with all your heart, O daughter of Jerusalem! (Zephaniah 3:14 NASB)”
As we near the end of the third week in Advent, I remember the above Bible verse from Sunday. The theme for the third week in Advent is joy; that’s why the candle for this week is pink instead of purple. Purple is usually associated with repentance.
God sent His Son into the world to redeem us. Isn’t that amazing? He was brought low so we could be lifted from the grave! That is why I say to shout for joy. Even better: sing with gladness! Really. A song in your heart can bring a shot of gladness to your day!
