March 22, 2015 – Romans 15:13

Romans15-13aMay 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 15:13King David said, “My cup overflows with blessings.”  (Psalm 23:5)  Joy – Peace – Trust – Hope….by the power of the Holy Spirit.  Even death or the loss of all earthly possessions cannot quench the gifts Jesus Christ bought on the cross for those who will receive.The heart-deep joy is one that survives a deluge of rain from a cloudy sky. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.  Philippians 4:7. Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. John 14:1Choose this day whom you will serve – the God of hope, trust, joy and peace or fall into a pit of despair, distrust, anguish and chaos.Live in harmony with believers and followers of Christ Jesus, and give thanks and praise with one voice.  Love is the language of God, if you follow Him, you know this language, and speak it fluently. It is the language that that draws all men to Jesus.  It is the language that creates the heart anew in patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness and gentleness.  Self-Control wraps its cloak over all you do and think and say.And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father.  Colossians 3:17   It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises to the Most High. Psalm 92:1May God, who gives this patience and encouragement, help you live in complete harmony with each other, as is fitting for followers of Christ Jesus. Then all of you can join together with one voice, giving praise and glory to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 15:5-6
