Vital Step to a Radiant Faith-Rejoice In The Lord

June 29th, 2023

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year to Shine, today’s Vital Step to a Radiant Faith is rejoicing in the Lord.

The Apostle Paul gave this instruction in Philippians 4:4, and then emphasized it by repeating it.

In the Old Testament, Nehemiah talked about the joy of the Lord being our strength.

Joy is the experience of knowing God’s love. Having the joy of the Lord moves us to celebrate God’s amazing grace and to enjoy our relationship with Him.  We will be moved to places of praising God with our lips and worshipping Him with our hearts. There will be a song in our heart, and Jesus will be the theme of our music. His salvation will be our great delight. Our service for Him will be an honor and privilege.

Psalm 40:16 says, “May all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you; may those who long for your saving help always say, “The LORD is great!”

Rejoicing in the LORD is a vital step to a radiant faith that makes a difference in our world.
