James 1:2-3 “Consider it pure Joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance!”
Joyful are those bound in CHRIST because Fear cannot bind them to anything else.
Yet! Trembling still sometimes occurs where such boasts against Faith create tremors of Doubt!
So permit nothing seize you since HE WHO is faithful has conquered Hell’s chains.
Freed then HIServants we are…bound for Glory while sharing HIS story with all!
As HIServant to all: “All Joy is in CHRIST!”
Devotional: Embrace these two passages, my friends!
1 Peter 1:8-9 “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…
9 for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls.”
Romans 15:13 “May the GOD of Hope fill you with all Joy and Peace as you trust in HIM, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT.”
Yes! Pure Joy!
Philemon 1:7 “7 Your love has given me great joy and encouragement, because you, brother, have refreshed the hearts of the LORD’s people!”
So refresh the Body and sing with hearts full of Joy to the Lost!
Amen and amen!
