We Make Him Glad

Psalm 45 opens up with a beautiful description of how glorious and great Jesus, the anointed King, truly is. 

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. Psalm 45 opens up with a beautiful description of how glorious and great Jesus, the anointed King, truly is. And somewhere around the 5th verse, it says that our praise of the King makes him glad. When I read that, I just had to stop. Because we all know how God makes us glad, but how do we make him glad? Well, every time you sing a praise song from your heart, with joy and maybe even tears in your eyes, that makes Jesus glad. Forgive someone who has offended you, and you make Christ glad. Give to the poor, and God rejoices. Witness to a neighbor, and it’s a sweet savor to the Lord. Defend the reputation of Jesus, and you fill his heart with joy. Friend, it is in your power to still break the alabaster jar and pour the precious oil of gladness on Christ’s head. So make him glad today through your loving words and, best of all, obedient actions.
