The joy inside

July 22nd, 2009

Some days I wish I could properly explain the joy I have inside me that comes from knowing Jesus.

I really wish that all the people I know who don’t know Jesus could walk around with this feeling inside them for two weeks. It would be life changing and they wouldn’t want to go back.

Why do I have this joy? Here are a few of the reasons…

1. I know that at any time of the day or night I can stop and talk to the creator of the universe and He hears me.

2. I am not alone in this life. God is always with me wherever I go.

3. My past wrongs have been completely forgiven and I have started afresh. That is a huge load of baggage gone.

4. My eternal destiny is sorted. The Bible tells me that because I know and love Jesus my eternal destiny is with Him.

5. I know God has made me a certain way for a purpose. I am not here by random chance. I have a great job to do.

6. I have the joy of connection with other people who love Jesus too.

7. I have a great peace in knowing that God holds my future. Both in this life and the life to come.

These are just some of the reasons why I love being a Christian and love knowing Jesus. The joy inside me overwhelms me sometimes and I just can’t contain it.

I really can’t encourage you enough to take that step of asking Jesus into you life if you haven’t already done so. It will be the start of a great journey which brings peace, purpose and a great joy.

God Bless,
