Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 10/02/11

This week’s scripture is from Isaiah:

In that day they will say,

“Surely this is our God;
we trusted in him, and he saved us.
This is the LORD, we trusted in him;
let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation.”   
 (Isaiah 25:9)

How faithful God is. We know He sent His son Jesus Christ that we might have eternal life with Him through His blood, death, and resurrection, but when is the last time you rejoiced in his salvation, when you walked in gladness? Remember when you were first saved; remember the intense, overwhelming joy and peace that surrounded you and filled you? When is the last time you stepped away from the cares of the world and entered into the Lord’s presence and rejoiced in your salvation in Him? It is good to get away with the Lord, just to trust Him and be glad; today would be a good day to have the joy of the Lord.

May the Lord bless you with gladness as you rejoice in what Jesus has done for you.
