His Truth Will Set You Free

Listen to what Jesus says; “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:32)

The Spirit Speaks – of Joy

1 Comment

Joy & Holy Spirit

Happiness – it’s seems so elusive, and temporary, doesn’t it? This is because it comes from the world, and all things of the world are temporary. The happiness I, the Spirit of Jesus Christ, offer you is eternal and permanent, for it does not come from material things or worldly experience; it comes from God. I call this joy.

True joy starts growing when you look inside yourself, looking for me. I’m there, always waiting for you. When you believe in my presence, joy begins. As you empty yourself of the temporary things, as you empty yourself of your self, and make more room for me, then I will fill you up. As I become more within you, so does joy. And I can fill you to overflowing with joy. I’m already here, within you – please let go of your grasp on the material, and grab a hold of me, and the joy will begin to flow within you.

First, my writing isn't about me. Don’t want the attention, don’t want to feed my ravenous ego (yep, I’m just a typical pride-plagued human). But I love writing - it gets me out of bed when it's way too dark, just so I can do some writing before heading off to work. I write because I’m passionate about God, Jesus, His Spirit, and His truth. And, I feel the Holy Spirit gets shortchanged in the world we call Christianity. The truth is sometimes lacking too.
