Just Rejoice

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 1:3 (NIV)

I have said on many previous occasions that I love being a Christian and have great joy in it. I often do not know what I am going to blog about until near deadline. I try to look for things to blog about during the course of the week but I usually come up empty handed. Presently I am reading the book of Philippians and today read this scripture.

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Philippians 4:4 (NRSV)

Then at the bottom right hand page I noticed a small study section titled “Christian Joy”… I found my blog.

We Christians have a relationship with Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, the Heavenly Father God Almighty and the Holy Spirit. Our relationship is constant and even when we stray Christ Jesus is always with us.

20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20(NIV)

Crazy thing about being a Christian is that once we find Christ Jesus He never lets go of us even if we stray Jesus Christ is always trying to lead us back to Him.

20 Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:20 (NLT)

So then Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior is always with us and we are always with Him. Christ Jesus will never leave us or forsakes us, we can rejoice always because He is the source of our joy…so rejoice…always.

23 May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with you.24 My love to all of you in Christ Jesus. 1 Corinthians 16: 23-24 (NLT)
