Infectiously joyful believers have no trouble convincing people around them that Christianity is real and that Christ can transform a life.

From Philippians 4:4-5:  “Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice.  Let your gentleness be known to everyone.  The Lord is near.”

Though I have walked with God for several decades, I must confess I still find much about Him incomprehensible and mysterious.  But this much I know:  He delights in surprising us.  He dots our pilgrimage from earth to heaven with amazing serendipities.  

From Psalm 145:16:  “You open your hand, satisfying the desire of every living thing.”

On each occasion when we observe the Lord’s Table . . . we are not simply to feel or to read or to hear or to see, but to take into our very bodies the taste of our Savior’s sacrifice.

From Psalm 34:8:  “O taste and see that the Lord is good; happy are those who take refuge in Him.”

There are four words I wish we would never forget, and they are, “God keeps His word.”  You can trust Him.

From Psalm 145:9:  “The Lord is good to all, and His compassion is over all that He has made.”

Joy is a choice.  It is a matter of attitude that stems from one’s confidence in God.

From Psalm 16:11:  “You show me the path of life.  In your presence there is fullness of joy; in your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”

Harmonious partnerships are the result of hard work; they never “just happen.”  The “hard work” also includes giving just as much as taking.  In one word it means being “unselfish.”

From 1 Corinthians 13:4-6:  “Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude.  It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth.”

What does it mean to be a person after God’s own heart?  Seems to me, it means that you are a person whose life is in harmony with the Lord.

From 2 Peter 1:5-7:  “For this very reason, you must make every effort to support your faith with goodness, and goodness with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with endurance, and endurance with godliness, and godliness with mutual affection, and mutual affection with love.”

Grace is positive and unconditional acceptance in spite of the other person.  Grace is a demonstration of love that is undeserved, unearned, and unpayable.

From Micah 6:8:  “He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?”

The thing we have to do in our walk with God is to listen carefully from day to day.

From Proverbs 2:1-2:  “My child, if you accept my words and treasure up my commandments within you, making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding.”
