JOY

INTRODUCTION: RELIGIOUS WRITER, BROOK, REMINDS US “IN THE SPIRITUAL HARVEST, THE SOWER AND THE REAPER REJOICE TOGETHER”. TRUE JOY IS A REALITY FOR EVERY BELIEVER.

SPIRITUAL INSIGHT:

READ 1 JOHN 1: 4

THE APOSTLE JOHN EXPLAINED THAT FELLOWSHIP IS DEEPER THAN A SIMPLE RELATIONSHIP.

JOHN 15:11 (NKJV) THESE THINGS I HAVE SPOKEN TO YOU, THAT MY JOY MAY REMAIN IN YOU, AND (THAT) YOUR JOY MAY BE FULL

LIFE ISSUES CAN TEST A BELIEVER’S RESOLVE. NEVER LET IT TAKE AWAY YOUR JOY IN THE LORD FOR “THE JOY OF THE LORD IS MY STRENGTH”. THIS IS A QUOTE FROM NEHEMIAH 8:10 AS HE LEAD A REMNANT OF JEWS TO PRAISE, WORSHIP AND CELEBRATION IN JERUSALEM. NEHEMIAH KNEW HIS SOURCE OF STRENGTH WAS IN THE LORD!

JOHN 17:13 (NKJV) BUT NOW I COME TO YOU, AND THESE THINGS I SPEAK IN THE WORLD, THAT THEY MAY HAVE MY JOY FULFILLED IN THEMSELVES.

CHRIST, NEARING THE END OF HIS EARTHLY MINISTRY, EXPRESSES HIS DESIRE TO HIS HEAVENLY FATHER REGARDING HIS DISCIPLES. HIS EARTHLY WORK WOULD END ON THE CROSS. HIS WANTED ALL HIS DISCIPLES TO BE FILLED WITH JOY.

HABAKKUK 3: 18 (NKJV) YET I WILL REJOICE IN THE LORD, I WILL JOY IN THE GOD OF SALVATIONS.

PSALMS 33: 20-21 (NKJV) OUR SOUL WAITS FOR THE LORD; HE (IS) OUR HELP AND OUR SHIELD. FOR OUR HEART SHALL REJOICE IN HIM, BECAUSE WE HAVE TRUSTED IN HIS HOLY NAME

APPLICATION: TRUE JOY IS TRUE FELLOWSHIP!
