Finding joy that surpasses your circumstances
April 27, 2012
May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light.
I heard about some prospectors who were mining for gold in Colorado years ago. They came upon a large amount of gold, and they agreed with one another that they wouldn’t tell anybody where they found it.
So the day came when they had to go back to the city and get fresh supplies and provisions. And when they went back to the city people began to notice something was different about them based solely on the looks upon their faces. They couldn’t keep it to themselves!
When you have abundant life in Jesus Christ, it’s going to show up. You can’t keep it to yourself! You won’t have to look for people to share Christ with; they’ll be looking at you if you truly have the joy of the Lord. And you’ll have the privilege of telling them that the difference is the Lord Jesus Christ!
In every situation in life—the good and the bad—Jesus makes all the difference. It’s the unspeakable joy we have in Him that makes life really worth living. It’s in following Him that we find meaning and purpose. And when we do, the lives we live will be markedly different because we have a hope beyond compare!
MAKE JESUS CHRIST THE CENTER OF YOUR LIFE AND YOU’LL EXPERIENCE REAL JOY THAT GOES BEYOND YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES.
