"Let all things be done decently and in order"
"Rejoicing in Hope"
The Lord has given us new life in a risen Christ. We rejoice in the resurrection and all that it promises for our lives. Each day we should petition the Lord to fill us with the power of His Spirit, so that we may better praise Him for His gifts of joy and hope. Apostle Paul, who once viewed Christians as enemies, had a life changing experience on a Damascus road. After the encounter with Jesus, Paul slowly began to experience joy and hope. He shared those feelings in a letter to the Philippians (Phil 4:4-5, 9). He had to tell everyone the Good News of what God had done for us through Jesus Christ.
Consider the following scriptures that reference the joy and hope that we have in Jesus:
1 Chronicles 16:10: “Be glad that we belong to Him; let all who worship Him rejoice.” (GNT)
Romans 15:13: “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit” (NIV)
Let us continue to rejoice in the hope that comes from the risen Savior.
Read, Study, Reflect and Meditate on the teachings in your Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth daily.
