The Joy of Your Salvation

Salvation comes about as a result of your acceptance of Jesus Christ into your heart and the understanding and acknowledgement that He did indeed die on that cross at Calvary for your sins. The truth is that when we believe this with all our hearts, our lives take on new meaning. Our days begin to fill with joy. When we come to fully understand what this means for us, and the implications of this truth, our lives begin to be filled with purpose. We begin to live with purpose. We begin to live for Him. Galatians 2:20 NKJV “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.”

When one truly understands this, and takes this message into their hearts, a new life will commence! A new beginning on a completely new road! It will be the beginning of enlightenment to the truth, shining the way forward for you. Psalm 119:105 NKJV “Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.”

New knowledge and a completely new direction are all part of this journey. Living successfully and receiving guidance along the way are among the many benefits of your new life. Your problems will be ironed out, and your paths will be made smooth. Your steps will be directed by the Lord. Isaiah 26:7 "LORD, you make the path smooth for good people; the road they travel is level.”

With your newfound knowledge and skills in dealing with life’s many challenges, you will be equipped to handle anything. You will be able to rise above your circumstances, and be largely unaffected by those around you who are caught up in the ways of this world.

Your focus will be on Jesus and on His Word. You will, in time, become one with His will for you, and you will grow in ways that will astound both you and those around you. Those who are closest to you will not be able to comprehend the changes in you at first. They will be amazed at the new you, and your new life, and will come to the conclusion that it’s all as a result of your new life with Jesus at the helm. Isaiah 61:6-7 “And you will be known as the priests of the LORD, The servants of our God. You will enjoy the wealth of the nations And be proud that it is yours. Your shame and disgrace are ended. You will live in your own land, And your wealth will be doubled; Your joy will last for ever.”

You will become a blessing to others, and God will bless you too! By being a blessing to others, God’s holy name will be glorified, and people will see God’s love shining through you. Many lives can and will be touched in this way, and God will reward you for being His faithful servant. Matthew 25:23 NKJV “Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.” Amen.

PS Revelations 21:4-7 NKJV “And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away’. Then He who sat on the throne said, ‘Behold, I make all things new.’ And He said to me, ‘Write, for these words are true and faithful’. And He said to me, ‘It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son.”

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

All glory for these words, as always, goes to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
