Do We Mirror The Real Joy Of Christ In Us
We have a friend in Jesus who has given us the most marked evidence of His love, and who is able and willing to give life and salvation to all who come unto Him. It is our privilege to believe the promises of the Living Word of God, and accept the blessings that Jesus loves to bestow, that our joy may be full.
When we make our Christian experience appear to unbelievers, as one that is joyless, filled with trials, doubts, and perplexity; we dishonor God and do not correctly represent Jesus in our lives or the Christian faith.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
Thus when we share the Gospel message of Jesus with people we meet along the way we are to mirror Him in us and reflect the true joy of being a Christian believer.
