A Day Without Laughter by Denise Chand

It is said a day without laughter is a wasted day. The Word of God shows us who we are in Christ; therefore, we should be free from people and circumstances (whatever it may be). Why? Because nothing is impossible with God; there is nothing too hard for God and when we walk with God we experience the supernatural (miracles). The Word of God also tells us where the Spirit is there is liberty.
“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty (emancipation from bondage, freedom) 2Cor 3:17AMP
One definition of liberty is: freedom from control, interference, obligation, restriction, hampering conditions, etc.; power or right of doing, thinking, speaking, etc., according to choice.

The Spirit of God is always the Spirit of liberty; freedom from bondage, oppression and depression (a.k.a. freedom from being miserable!). Hence, we should laugh - show those pearly whites we have behind our lips; allow the benefit of laughter to filter through and around you. Laughter is contagious, therapeutic – it’s the best medicine 
 and healthy for you (Research has proved that “A positive link between laughter and healthy function of blood vessels has caused the inner lining of blood vessels, the endothelium, to dilate or expand such to increase blood flow.” – No, I’m not a health specialist.) 
A joyful heart is good medicine. Pro 17:22 NASB
Having said the foregoing, why do so many Christians look as if they went to bed with a sour lemon in their mouths and woke up with it still there? In church, some are sour and when they’re outside of church it seems as if the sourness turns to more bitterness.

Now, if I wasn’t born again and I see a Christian (whether overhearing the person is a Christian or having personal knowledge that they are), who doesn’t have the joy or happiness and seem to lack the ability to laugh, why would I give my life to Christ? Where is the distinction?

It’s ok to laugh, people - your name will not be removed from the Book of Life! It’s ok to live and enjoy life. So why allow a day to be wasted – a day without laughter truly is a wasted day.

I feel sorry for those who are unable to laugh – it sucks to be them!

  1. I agree wholeheartedly!

    You can always tell the difference between a liberated Christian and one that is weighed down in life. The ability to laugh at oneself, life and circumstances is a sign of strength and victory. A person's response to life's circumstances will determine the outcome. Laughter is a gift - beneficial to our well being, spiritually, physically and mentally. I always wonder if laughter is so good for us and the benefits are endless, why people don't laugh more especially Christians...
