Love Rejoices in Truth

Love rejoices in truth, not in fake news.

What makes you happy?
What makes you laugh out with great joy, from the depths of your heart?
Have you ever checked the reasons for your laughter? Or,
have you just strung along life and gone with the flow?

So many believers, born into “christian” families, have never bothered to examine their lives. Which is why many are found struggling with mental and emotional issues. How to examine? Looking at Jesus who walked the earth as the only example to emulate. Studying the word of God to seek God in prayer for the things inspired by the Holy Spirit.

If laughter is the best medicine, what is causing that laughter is critical. Movies and Internet media have contaminated the minds and hearts of people with their “roasts” and “stand-ups”. Do these bring you joy? True christians do not seek after false joy; they know where to find real joy.

There is so much joy when a team wins in sports or games. This joy too is carnal and earthly. These systems were created to fill us with duplicate joy and steal our time away from God. We also know most of these games are fixed to make money.

Love rejoices in the truth

“rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;” (1 Corinthians‬ ‭13:6‬)

The wicked love lies and sin. The righteous love the truth. Those who enjoy truth, also are sanctified by the power in the truth of the word of God.

How can we rejoice and enjoy the presence of God? When we humble ourselves in prayer and fellowship. When we keep God before us, He gives our body rest too; not just our spirit and soul. The true way of this life is found in the presence of God. God reveals it to us.

“I have set the LORD always before me: Because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: My flesh also shall rest in hope. Thou wilt shew me the path of life: In thy presence is fulness of joy; At thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.” (Psalm‬ ‭16:8-9, 11‬)‭

A new day is a day of rejoicing because this is the day He has made (Psalms 118:24). The truth about the new day is, it’s a gift. A gift to come closer to Him, be fruitful.

Be filled with the joy of the Lord, and in the power of His might. When God fills us with the Holy Spirit, our rejoicing is powered by love, God’s love.

Prepare yourself for the day of greatest joy for all those who seek His coming. The rapture is near, the groom is all set to pick the bride the Holy Spirit prepares. Maranatha, Praise God and Amen.

Rejoicing everyday is the way of life for a believer

rejoicing in god our daily delight

Heaven is full of rejoicing, joy and laughter. There is always a great rejoicing, singing and praise and glory. It is the presence of God; glorious and wonderful, more than we can ever imagine. Our feeble minds can never express the exceeding abundance of heaven.

Yet, God gives us little experiences of His presence. There’s nothing more refreshing and invigorating than being filled with the Holy Spirit.

Sin draws a person to enjoy the world and its pleasures.
God’s love draws us to enjoy Him and the pleasures of heaven.

What makes you rejoice? Is heaven in your heart? Do you have His assurance of an everlasting life ahead? Does thinking about the glorious appearing of Jesus fill you with lively hope? Everything of God is full of life and strength.

Rejoicing in persecution

Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. (Matthew 5:12)

The godly will suffer persecution. No one who enters heaven can escape persecution. Nevertheless, the light affliction is nothing compared to the eternal glory that awaits believers. Believers do not live worrying about what persecution may befall, rather they are focused on when we will meet Jesus in the air.

Rescued from backsliding

And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray. (Matthew 18:13)

Rejoice because you are alive again, turning away form backsliding. God rejoices in our company <– think about this for a moment. Isn’t it unbelievable, though we know it’s true? When we learn to live believing then God’s presence will be a continuous source of delight.

Name on Heaven’s list

Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven. (Luke 10:20)

Rejoice because your name is written in heaven. We rejoice in works which manifest in our lives through the power of God. Big mistake! We need to rejoice because God has called us into His presence, to be with Him for eternity.

There are so many reasons to be happy and joyful in Jesus. What a day it will be when we meet Him in the air! Maranatha, Praise God and Amen!
