Title: The Creator of Joy
Scripture: Isaiah 65:18 says,
“Be glad and rejoice forever in that which I create; for behold, I create Jerusalem to be a joy, and her people to be a gladness.”
Main Idea: What God creates is intended for joy.
For Hungry Readers: God is the Creator, and we can rejoice in what he creates. We can rejoice that God has created a New Jerusalem in heaven, and that someday that city will come down to earth, and there we will live forever with God and his holy people. God’s city will give joy. God’s people will give joy.
God is the Creator of what brings joy. God loves joy. Joy is his idea.
Worship and Faith Declarations: God, I praise you that you are the Joyful One, the creator of joy, the giver of my joy. I rejoice in the New Jerusalem. I rejoice in your people. I celebrate having you as my God.
