Before I came into a relationship with the Lord, I thought that the Christian life was boring. NO FUN AT ALL! But when you “KNOW” Christ, when He is present in your heart, He does three things: He convicts of sin, He forgives sin, and He offers PERSONAL INTIMACY AND JOY. It’s the JOY that springs up in your heart because of your relationship to the Lord. It’s a God-given GLADNESS found ONLY in communion with God. But how is the joy of the Lord is your strength? It’s like this; when you “KNOW” that the Eternal, Almighty, ever Loving God is FOR YOU and that He is always present WITH YOU and His eternal love for you that CANNOT BE DESTROYED and He supervises all things for YOUR BENEFIT. My dear friend; if you can’t be joyous over that and face life with His Holy Spirit inspired boldness ... CHECK YOUR PULSE!
