Rejoice and Go Crazy For Jesus
You might ask what’s there to be joyful for. There’s so much to be joyful for because of all Jesus has accomplished for us and it should be our natural state; the Holy Spirit is in us. There are so many instructions to rejoice written in the epistles. It’s not the default state for the believer to be sad or downcast. It’s his default state to be joyful. His joy is not dependent on the situations around him. It’s dependent on the constants in his life through Christ.
6 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:
7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:
Why do we rejoice?
We rejoice because of all that Christ has done for us. We rejoice because by believing we are the sons of God. We rejoice because we have God living in us and preserving us in him forever. In the midst of trails we rejoice for nothing shall separate us from his love. We rejoice!!.
Even we it seems like we’re faced with various trials and temptations we rejoice. We are exceeding glad. In the midst of challenges focus on a the father has done and rejoice. In rejoicing we focus on the truth who is Christ. Focus on the strength you have in Gid and rejoice!!!!.Our default setting is joy. Glory to Jesus.
