Joyless Or Joyful (Chinese/English)

PSALM 32: 8-11I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;I will counsel you with my eye upon you. Be not like a horse or a mule, without understanding, which must be curbed with bit and bridle, or it will not stay near you.  Many are the sorrows of the wicked, but steadfast love surrounds the one who trusts in the Lord. Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, O righteous,and shout for joy, all you upright in heart!
诗篇32:8-11我要教导你、指示你当行的路.我要定睛在你身上劝戒你。 你不可像那无知的骡马、必用嚼环辔头勒住他.不然、就不能驯服。 恶人必多受苦楚.惟独倚靠耶和华的、必有慈爱四面环绕他。你们义人应当靠耶和华欢喜快乐.你们心里正直的人、都当欢呼。

Joyless Or Joyful

A person who is forgiven is the happiest man on the planet, pure joy fills his/her heart.

 Look at what they are able to do, they are able to instruct others, we are able to relate our experiences to others, we can share the joy of being forgiven with others, it is truly something we can share.. amen

 We who are forgiven and upright in heart, can be glad, we can shout for joy. We can praise the God who alone gives us forgiveness, this is the greatest feeling in the world to be forgiven, the psalmist just shouts it out.

 Are you glad you have forgiven?

 If you looked at many Christians, you wouldn’t realise it, they are so sad, not like the psalmist in verse 11, they are not glad in the Lord and shouting for joy.

 Are you glad in the Lord and shouting for joy because you have been forgiven?

 Are you instructing others, because you have been forgiven?  Why do you think people are so sorrowful today?

 Because they have no forgiveness, people crave forgiveness, this is man’s greatest need, he has sin like a ball and chain round his foot.

 We have the words of eternal life, what are you doing with them?

 Believer, you have forgiveness, shout it out, be glad, tell the world that the steadfast love of the Lord surrounds those who trust in Him.

 The joy of forgiveness is amazing, if you know it, it’s time to SHOUT AND SHARE IT, to a needy and hurting world.

God Bless You!

  1. Amen!
    Forgiving is stated emphatically by the LORD – In order to be forgiven by the LORD, we must forgive others – but not only that – it is a balm for the soul. Hatred, and bearing a grudge can be erosive and caustic to a body, mind and soul.
    Nicely done, thank you Keith
    God Bless
