Part 4: People of joy

(This is part 4 of 10 parts in this class)


God expects you and me to be people of joy. We've seen how He provides us with strength in joy. It's also one way He extends His kingdom in the earth!


King David the psalmist had a clear grasp of this and he prayed:

Restore to me the joy of Your salvation...then I will teach transgressors Your ways, and sinners shall be converted to You.

Psalm 51:12,13 - NKJV


Apostle Paul knew his strength was in joy. His epistle to the Philippians is filled with statements of joy and declarations of how he constantly gave joy place in his life. He testifies,

This one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead.

Philippians 3:13 - KJV


God calls you to do the same; to forget the mess ups and sins of the past and stretch out forwards towards the better things of the future in Him.

Remember now only the Blood of the Lamb and your victories in that Blood. If you must look back, look back to where Jesus was delivered for your offences and raised again for your justification. (See Romans 4:25.)
