A TIME TO REMEMBER: JOY UNSPEAKABLE.

A TIME TO REMEMBER: JOY UNSPEAKABLE.

Postby ROBIN » Tue Jul 15, 2014 5:08 pm

There have been so many times in my life where I have been elated. I've punched the air and shouted, YES! It is something that one cannot adequately describe. It is manifested with a feeling of overwhelming relief and satisfaction. I remember when I passed matric after the teachers predicted I would fail. I remember when I was chosen for the Provincial Currie Cup swimming team and made captain. I remember when I got married. I remember when our children were born. I remember when I faced financial ruin and the Lord came to my rescue. I remember when the Springbok rugby team won the 1995 and 2007 world cups. I remember how many times we came through pressing and potential disasters at the work place. I remember when the Lord protected my son Matthew when he rode his bicycle into a car.

Above and besides all these things, nothing can compare to remembering when I first made Jesus Christ the Lord and Saviour of my life. That was the day when I was born from above and was reconciled to God. I remember when I was Baptized with the Holy Spirit and mightily re-filled with the Holy Spirit years later. I remember when I came to a fuller knowledge and understanding of the Grace of God.
But today I remember with pure joy and gratefulness of what I have and who I am in Christ. These truths produced a joy unspeakable. “Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see [him] not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:” (1Pe 1:8) They conjure up in me a sense of such wonder and amazement that can only be expressed by Jesus when He spoke to the Samaritan woman at the well. Jesus said: “He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.” (Jhn 7:38)

THE GOOD NEWS I remember today, with humility and faith is that:
I am a new creation in Christ.
I am reconciled to God.
I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus
I have been saved by grace through faith.
I don’t have to earn my salvation, it is a gift.
I don’t have to rely on my works to get into heaven.
Eternal Life began the moment I received Christ.
I am accepted in the Beloved.
Christ will never condemn me.
God loves me unconditionally.
I am totally forgiven of all my sins, past present and future.
By His stripes I am healed.
I can resist the devil and don’t have to fall into sin.
I have the very Godhead, Father, Son and Holy Spirit living in my spirit.
Old things have passed away.
In Christ there is no darkness.
In Christ there is only light.
I have been purchased by Jesus and belong to him now.
I have hope and joy and peace.
I am an ambassador for Christ.
Old things have passed away all things are new.
Because I’m in Christ: The Father sees Jesus in me.
I have the resurrection power of Christ in me.
I can lay hands on the sick and they will recover.
I need never fear.
I need never fear death.
I have been given the spirit of power and soundness of mind.
I have the mind of Christ.
I walk by faith and not by sight.
I have a new identity in Christ.
I have been given the ministry of reconciliation.
If I sin, I have Christ as my advocate.
I can lay off the old man and put on the new man which is conformed after Christ.
I have the Word of God to renew my mind.
Jesus has given me life, abundant Life.
I have the Holy Spirit springing forth from my innermost being.
I can reckon myself dead to sin.
I can praise the Lord.
The Lord is my Shepherd.
Jesus is my hiding place.
Every promise in the Word is mine in Christ.
I have a heritage in Christ.
I have the Holy Spirit as my Comforter and Guide.
I have powerful spiritual weapons at my disposal to fight the good fight of faith.

And this is just a sample of many spiritual truths that are encapsulated in Christ." And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." (Jhn 8:32)
I have only scratched the surface. There are many, many more gold nuggets in the Word of God just waiting to be revealed by the Holy Spirit.
What a privilege!
What a Saviour! These truths ignite in me a pure desire to spread abroad this GOOD NEWS which is the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
