The Joy Of Knowing Jesus
How getting to know more about Jesus will give you more joy in life.
Hebrews 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
You Can Have Joy Because Jesus Has Defeated The World By Overcoming Sin.
Thank God for sending Jesus as our champion since He was the only one who has never committed a single sin and the only one who has consistently kept every commandment of God even though he faced torture, ridicule and death among the many other temptations we lose to everyday without failing.
John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
You Can Have Joy Because Jesus Died On The Cross For Your Sins.
The whole purpose of God sending Jesus (The only son He ever had) was to save us from the sins in which we were born into, that way we can enjoy an everlasting life of love, joy and peace with them in heaven when we die.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
You Can Have Joy Because Jesus Sent The Holy Spirit To Comfort You.
You can count on God to be prepared for everything that's why even though Jesus died on the cross for our sins and is no longer around at this time that made way for Him to send us a comforter to help us by teaching us the word of God and by reminding us of the word of God in His absence.
John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
You Can Have Joy Because Whatever You Ask The Father In Jesus Name He Will Give To You.
And if that's not enough Jesus even allows us to come to the father in His Holy name and get what we ask for in prayer so that we can live life in abundance and full of joy.
John 16:23-24 And in that day ye shall ask me nothing Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.
You Can Have Joy When People Persecute You Over Jesus Because You Will Receive a Great Reward When You Get To Heaven.
Considering all the work Jesus has done for you the least you can do is proclaim your love for Him and keep his commandments. Sure people are going to hate you for it but who cares, you don't need them, you need Jesus, and they do too.
Luke 6:22-23 Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.
You Can Have Joy Because Jesus Promised To Come Back And Put An End To All Suffering.
And finally, Jesus will return with joy everlasting at last there will be great joy, great happiness, and great peace, as he puts an end to everything that causes suffering, affliction and strife in the world like the true champion that He is.
John 14:2 In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you.
