12/13/16 His Joy In Our Hearts

“Now, since Jesus willingly sacrificed Himself to save us from the punishment we were headed toward for our sins, He has restored our relationship with God. And having given everything to bring us back to Himself when we were His enemies, how much more will God love and care for us now that we are His own children? Having rescued us from death, He now gives us life, and uses that life to gradually remake us into the people He created us to be. And not only has He saved us from death and given us new life in Himself, and a restored relationship with Him, but He fills our hearts with the joy of His presence. We will not go to Heaven sheepishly, hanging back for fear of being shamed, but we will enter joyously and triumphantly, knowing that we are part of the Royal Family.”

Romans 5:9-11
