Clap Your Hands

There was a little boy who expressed his joy by clapping his hands. If you put him on the floor with a toy, he would clap his hands. If you mentioned going out, he would clap his hands. It reminds me of the song, If you are happy and you know it, clap your hands. If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands. If you’re happy and you know it, your face will really show it. If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands!

In John’s Gospel we find Jesus telling about the main source of joy for his followers. After saying that if we abide with him, we will bear much fruit, our Lord said: “I have said these things to you so that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be complete.” (John 15:11) Christians should be joyous hand clappers! In John’s Gospel, Jesus went on to say, “I have called you friends…You did not choose me but I chose you. And I appointed you to go and bear fruit, fruit that will last, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. (John 15: 16-17). Bearing good fruit, through our service in Christ’s name is our calling and our duty. Clap your hands!
