"Inexpressible and Glorious Joy"

“Inexpressible and Glorious Joy”

Though you have not seen Him, you love Him; and even though you do not see Him now, you believe in Him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls. 1 Peter 1:8-9

In the life of a TRUE BELIEVER, they will face trials, which will try their FAITH, and some will experience more than everyday trials, they will be confronted with PERSECUTION, because of their FAITH. Yet in the face of these trials and persecutions, they persevere, and in some cases their FAITH is strengthened. This is POSSIBLE because of the LIVING HOPE of an ETERNITY in HEAVEN, with ALL the other Saints, and with the One who paid the price for our REDEMPTION. The One we call the LORD JESUS CHRIST. He PAID with His PRECIOUS BLOOD and purchased our SALVATION.

This LIVING HOPE is a result of the INEXPRESSIBLE, GLORIOUS JOY, which we can and do experience when we become a part of God’s Family, and when we have that SURE HOPE of a FUTURE INHERITANCE, waiting for us in Heaven. Our ability to EXPERIENCE this JOY is because our FOCUS is on the One who makes it POSSIBLE, the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Apostle Peter, may have REMBEMBERED the WORDS of our Lord when He told Thomas, “Blessed are those who have NOT seen and yet have BELIEVED.” (John 20:29) The True Believers of today, do NOT now SEE Him, but like the Apostle, they LOVE and BELIEVE in Him. This is the WORK of the HOLY SPIRIT, who indwells the HEART of EVERY TRUE BELIEVER. And because of the FAITH, HOPE and LOVE of the TRUE BELIEVER, they EXPERIENCE INEXPRESSIBLE and GLORIOUS JOY, regardless of the trials and persecutions. It is NOT the OUTWARD circumstances that gives us JOY, but it is the STEADFAST FAITH, the LIVING HOPE and the DEEP LOVE we have for our SAVIOR and LORD. Do you have that INEXPRESSIBLE, GLORIOUS JOY in your HEART?

 

God LOVES YOU, and wants you to EXPERIENCE that INEXPRESSIBLE, GLORIOUS JOY, and to possess that LIVING HOPE of an INHERITANCE in Heaven. This can ONLY happen, when you are WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. You MUST BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in HEAVEN, making intercession for you, before God. Then CONFESS your sins to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. You MUST ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION and LOVE JESUS, even though you have NOT SEEN Him. Then EXPERIENCE that INEXPRESSIBLE, GLORIOUS JOY, and the LIVING HOPE of AN ETERNAL INHERITANCE in HEAVEN. Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!

Mood: hopeful
