John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.(KJV)
Because of the above verse, we can be filled with great joy, peace and love walking in His Holy Spirit. Jesus came to save all, who would call upon him and believe he is the living Son of God. Today if we are a complete believer in Jesus allowing him to guide our every step walking in great faith, others will see there is something different about us because of our great joy.
How to obtain this is only be allowing Jesus full access to our hearts, minds and our souls. I am a Christian because of who Jesus is in me, nothing can change my joy to sorrow for I know in whom I serve. Jesus gives us joy beyond measure, when we are faithfully true to him by following his commands. We are always in unity with him, as he guides our minds to read, pray or give a word in season to another. We are to walk as a Christian full of His Holy Spirit daily, becoming more like Jesus daily.
There are many who will condemn Christians for their belief, these are the ones who feel the difference in us yet are unwilling to allow Jesus access to their hearts. Do they really believe because of their hate toward us Jesus will allow them to live with him in heaven? Why would they want to live in heaven if they cannot show Jesus love while living here in earth? I know the Lord is a God of love, but He is also a God that hates all evil, liars and those who refuse him. They refuse to walk with him and what he is offering which is love, joy, peace here on earth in our hearts and souls, then life everlasting with Him and Jesus in heaven.
Jesus will be the only one to judge the wicked, for he was here in earth walked among us as a human then ascended up to the Father to be our Lord and Savior. Jesus is holy and righteous full of love and mercy toward us. This showed his love for the Father, to become human fulfilling the will of the Father for us to have a way back to them.
We cannot be saved any other way but through the blood of Jesus. A Christian will follow Jesus every where he leads them, even to die for him, because they know who He is inside of their hearts. A true follower of Jesus will ask of him what his will is for them, asking him to show them where they need to be. Jesus will never ask of us anything that we can not do, but he will go with us to the very end of where he may lead us.
John 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.(KJV)
Love is beautiful when we come to accept the Lord Jesus as our Savior, then joy pours forth into our souls that we cannot contain, but wish for all mankind to feel. This is only a portion of how to explain the joy I feel as a Christian.
Now I would like to share a few last verses with those who still have doubt as to whether God hates. In Revelation 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimestone: which is the second death.(KJV)
Proverbs 6:16-19 These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: 17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, 18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, 19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethern. (KJV)
A true joyous believer has more to praise Jesus for than any words can explain or tell to another. Only by becoming a true born again Christian filled by the Holy Spirit of Jesus, which fills our hearts can we even begin to know the full joy of our Lord, his peace beyond measure and such love flowing so deeply in our hearts.
