Yesterday at church, our pastor spoke of the ways in which people share Christ. He asked us how we were sharing Him with others. I pondered this question on into the evening carrying it with me to bed in prayer. What was I doing to share Christ; to let His light shine through me so that others could see it and know Him too?
So I realized it was very simple….I would share a Word with you here, in my happy place. I will not have a regular schedule for this spreading of His Word with you;
only as it spurs me through Him and for Him.
So without further ado….A Word for you today:
When we spend time in God's presence, we will experience an increase in our joy, contentment, peace, and satisfaction. Specifically, David told the Lord, “in Your presence is fullness of joy” Psalm 16:11, AMP. Clearly, God will pour joy into our lives when we spend time in His presence. Then, we can take that joy and show it to those around us.
~I love sharing this with you my friends.
There are great changes that can occur when we
spend time with God. In God's presence is the
only place where we can become more like Christ.
Then, once God has changed us,the world will be astonished and
see that we have been with Jesus.
~ I guess we will have that guilty look of love and joy on our faces.
We can be joyful at all times...not because we are spared affliction but because we are completely satisfied in Christ.
~I love that. It’s fulfilling like a hot bowl of chili in winter.
We can be joyful not by creating a bubbly-faced facade of happiness to hide reality but rather by confidently knowing that, in the face of immense sin and suffering, we are secure in Christ. To put it positively, rejoice that you have received the Holy Spirit, who guarantees your eternal salvation~and thus, your eternal joy (2 Corinthians 1:21-22).
~Oh what joy I have knowing this! And it even comes with a guarantee…
Keeping it real…
