Jesus, Man of Joy

August 16, 2010

I’ve just discovered some quotes about joy from this site, Christian Goth. The first quote is from Sherwood Wirt, and one following is from Charles Spurgeon:

The radiant joy of the Holy Spirit shining in the face of a believer will pierce the religious fog in a friend’s mind better than any number of sermons from the pulpit. Without that joy, the Gospel of Jesus Christ will never break down the resistance of our skeptical generation. All the ardor, the fervor, the devotion and the prayers of the faithful may well fail to penetrate today’s unbeliever unless the Gospel message carries the same note of joy it had when it was first proclaimed. Fear won’t do it. Wrath won’t do it. Arguing won’t do it. Pleading won’t do it. JOY will do it. Because Satan is on a rampage and the Christian faith is under deadly assault, many earnest evangelicals are telling us that we must fight back. We must “defend the Bible.” But Charles Spurgeon retorts, “Defend the Bible? I would as soon defend a lion.” Righteous anger is not the strongest weapon in God’s armory. JOY is.

The whole article is a wonderful glimpse into the fruit of the Holy Spirit known as joy. It should be a distinct characteristic in the life of a person saved by God’s love.

Have you been surprised by the joy that comes from knowing Jesus, God who revealed Himself to us?

Grace quote

August 12, 2010

“It is grace at the beginning, and grace at the end. So that when you and I come to lie upon our death beds, the one thing that should comfort and help and strengthen us there is the thing that helped us in the beginning. Not what we have been, not what we have done, but the Grace of God in Jesus Christ our Lord. The Christian life sta…rts with grace, it must continue with grace, it ends with grace. Grace wondrous grace. By the grace of God I am what I am. Yet not I, but the Grace of God which was with me.” ~ Martyn Lloyd-Jones
