May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13 NIV
We who are children of God, who belong to the Father through the blood of His Son are filled with joy and peace through the Holy Spirit, the gift of the Son, sent to us by the Father. There is no true joy and peace living a life of this world. Any joy or peace derived from this world is short lived. True joy and peace come through Jesus Christ and is imparted to us through the indwelling Holy Spirit. We await with hope the promises made to us as believers. We know that we have been saved from eternal destruction solely through God’s grace, manifested through the sacrifice made by God’s only Son, Jesus Christ. We know that God’s promises shall come to fruition, as that which God declares shall be. Do you wish to live in the hope provided through God, or in despair, knowing that nothing good lies beyond the grave? Let us choose Christ and live in hope, filled with joy and peace.
