JOY AND PEACE! – Romans 15:13 Devotional

Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional


Romans 15:13 –  Devotional

Romans 15:13

“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

If there were some way of measuring the amount of joy and peace you had in your life, what would that gauge read? I fear that for many it would be closer to empty than full.

That is tragic! If ever there was a time when the world needed the joy and peace of the Lord, it is today. There is no end to the violence and hatred that surrounds us. But there is also no end to the joy and peace that is ours through our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ.

The call to go forth to bring hope to the hopeless people around us is loud and clear. We have a great opportunity to do something significant in our day and age. The Lord has given His new life that we in turn can share that new life with others.

I remember a song we sang when I was a young boy. It had the words; I have the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart to stay. I want that joy to be seen by others as I live my life for the Lord.

Blessings dear hearts walk with God today and become a blessing!
