JOY in 2023 Onward ©


The Baker Encyclopedia of the Bible defines joy as a positive human condition that can be either feeling or action, or a state of being.  For example, after spending 40 days with the “resurrected” JESUS and witnessing Him being carried up into heaven, Luke informs us that the disciples then “returned to Jerusalem with great joy (Luke 24:52). The disciples were elated and “felt” joy.    

On the other hand, the Apostle Peter writes about another joy.  A “joy inexpressible and full of glory”  (1 Peter 1:6-9).  An unspeakable joy that can be witnessed in the midst of hardship and suffering.  It is a joy caused by a Christian’s belief in JESUS CHRIST.  A belief in the Blood He shed on Calvary’s Cross for the remission of one's sins.  A belief in His death, burial, resurrection and ascension. 

As Christians, our joy is not contingent upon worldly events and occurrences.  It is an unspeakable joy that the world didn’t give us and a joy that the world can’t take away as sung by the anointed Shirley Caesar who wrote and composed “The World Didn’t Give it to Me.”   

In this 2023 Advent Season, remember to keep Hope, Love, Peace, and Joy alive. Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”   
(1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)

If you are reading this blog and have not yet accepted JESUS CHRIST as your Lord and Savior, you can do it now.  You can do it today! You – too – can experience that “unspeakable joy” before the 2024 new year arrives. Turn off all distractions and go to a quiet place.

Say out loud:

Please forgive me for the sins I have committed.
I know that I am a sinner, and I am truly sorry and repent of my sins.
Help me open up my heart to You and help me surrender my will to Your will.
I believe in Your death, burial and resurrection and the Blood you
shed for me on Calvary’s Cross.
Come into my life, Jesus. I make You my Lord and Savior.
Thank You for saving me, Lord JESUS.
I believe I am forgiven.

Peace & Blessings.
