Rejoice in the Lord

Dear friend,

Let me begin by asking you, what do you think about the Lord Jesus Christ? Well the Bible makes it clear He is a great and glorious Saviour. He came into this world, that is, He took human nature, in order to save sinners. In 1 Timothy 1: 15 we read, “This is faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.” Many have no time for this wonderful gospel, they have no desire to hear it, let alone rejoice over it. In contrast however, the true Christian, that is, one who has come to Jesus by way of believing and repented of their sins, loves to hear the gospel over and over again and rejoices in it; for it tells of their wonderful Saviour and Friend.

Oh what a joy it is to know Him, and then further to think, that because of what He has done for me, I will one day see Him and be with Him in heaven above. There in heaven, uninterrupted joys and pleasures are known and enjoyed by those who departed this world at death trusting in the Lord Jesus, however here below, because of sin there is much sorrow and misery. Now there are certain things which bring joy and happiness, for instance; the birth of baby, a wedding, or a family get together, yet we only have to read the newspapers or listen to the news and we are reminded there is much sorrow and misery to be found in this world. However, I tell you of a truth, and by experience, there is much joy to be found in knowing the Lord Jesus Christ. It is my prayer that you would know the precious Saviour and what it is to rejoice in Him.
